You never have to drink alone again thanks to South Korean inventor Eunchan Park. Knowing all too well what it felt to be alone during the holidays, Park came up with an unconventional idea to have a drinking buddy. “On Christmas in 2012, I drank Soju alone because I had no girlfriend at that time. Drinking alone was definitely terrible,” says Park. The tech-guru created an adorable, touque-wearing robot named Drinky. The new machine will cheer, drink alcohol, and get flushed cheeks like a real person. The only difference is Drinky’s beverage goes into a glass container that can be drank by a real person afterwards. And like a great friend, Drinky even gives a thumbs up after downing a glass of liquor. Another great benefit to the robot is there is no judging or remembering what was said last night. Drinky will be ready for another round when the hangover passes.
