Okay, well it does almost everything a meatspace bartender might do — except it won’t ignore girls in gay bars if it’s online in the Castro, and it probably won’t overpour if it likes your rack. (A stainless steel rack, perhaps?) But this wireless My Fountain: Virtual Bartender I just spotted over on Giz (who has all the details) has all the makings of the appliance of the future that belongs in my virtual house of the future. It’s programmable and you can mess with portion control, to hopefully get that five-to-one chilled water and absinthe mix just right. Or, you can program it to lock out teh children, who in my house, tend to be seven-foot-tall men in high heels after approximately 3am.
I want one.
