Not only does the device know when to automatically stop in order to prevent spills, it even adds an extra bit of foam, complying with what Japan generally considers to be the ideal ratio of 30 percent head to 70 percent beer in the glass.

Perhaps this is an opportunity to find out where the typical Farker stands on "More beer, less head".

I've never been able to backflip.  Must be all the videogames I played...

Did they really name it "Achires" ?  That's gold.

From what I read, neither can this robot. It can front flip though.
