    A South Korean inventor built a robotic drinking buddy.

    Park Eun Chan, a South Korean inventor, working together with his wife has managed to create a robot that can act as a drinking buddy.

    Not only can Robot Drinky, as the machine is called, drink — the cute little contraption does it in style. The robot clinks glasses with you, downs his portion of alcohol (which is stored in a jar in the lower half of the robot's body), all the while doing a good job of mimicking an actual human drinking companion.

    The video featuring Robot Drinky posted on Facebook has already been viewed over 1 million times.
