Robot Identifies Human Flesh As Bacon

  1. Robot Identifies Human Flesh As Bacon

    The Japanese robot is intended to act as a personal sommelier, suggesting wines, cheeses, and hors d'oeuvres based on its owners personal tastes. It also apparently thinks humans would be tasty as part of a sandwich."

    Upon being given a sample, he will speak up in a childlike voice and identify what he has just been fed. The idea is that
    wineries can tell if a wine is authentic without even opening the bottle, amongst other more obscure uses ... like 'tell me what this
    strange grayish lump at the back of my freezer is/was.'
    But when some smart-aleck reporter placed his hand in the robot's omnivorous clanking jaw, he was identified as bacon. A cameraman then tried and was identified as prosciutto."
