Robot makes coffee at new cafe in Japan's capital | tbo.com. There are some jobs that robots seem born to do. First among them; especially in a law office, is getting coffee. My secretary, after working for me for over 30 years, used to have a stock response if I asked for coffee. In the early years, it was "Get it yourself". In later years, that response devolved into "What the hell do I look like, your maid?" She sometimes swapped pejoratives for "hell". So, when I read about a robot barista that not only will get the coffee and bring it to you; but, will also go to a coffee machine and brew it, I get a serious case of "I want one". Bring on the robot revolution.
