Welcome to the Future. Beer- fetching robot completes your life.

Willow Garage has modified thier PR2 robot to have a beer retrieving application. You can check out a short writeup describing the project at their website. The PR2 has many other applications they have given it from plugging itself in to charge to playing pool.
They have also created a web interface that is accessible from a computer on their network. The video below demonstrates how it can take multiple orders and return with up to four different beers in an insulated holder at its base. Check out the video to see this masterpiece in action.
