Drinking alone can be a pretty depressing thing, particularly when going through a bad breakup/getting fired from a job/general life bullshit.

Luckily South Korean inventor Euchan Park created Drinky — a wonderful little robot who will knock back shots like the rest of us and will raise its glass for a cheers. It even glows red after downing a drink.
Sounds really cute and no way near as freaky as this freak humanbot. Having said that, the reason behind Drinky’s birth is all rather depressing – Euchan created the robot after spending a lonely Christmas drinking by himself.
On Christmas in 2012, I drank Soju alone because I had no girl friend at that time.
Drinking alone was definitely terrible. So I couldn’t drink anymore.
Lastly, I put an extra glass in front of me and poured Soju into it.
And then, I cheered by myself with the glass of Soju, as though there was someone in front of me. Surprisingly, after that, the taste became totally to be changed. Wow.
So, I could finally find the secret of taste of alcohol totally depends on existence of partner. This is why I made this robot.
Depressing start, but at least it led to this awesome invention. Although I can’t decide whether it might almost make me feel even worse about drinking by myself if I actually had to buy artificial intelligence to join me. Surely just invite a mate or some family around?
Anyway, I hope that Euchan enjoys much success with his new invention. Who knows, it might even help him get a girlfriend in time for next Christmas. Or he could combine Drinky with one of these heated, vibrating robot butts and have himself a very merry old time.
