Robot to Serve Humans Drinks Before Enslaving Our Race

I believe I'm on the record regarding my prediction of our future as slaves of a hyper-intelligent class of robots , so, for me, even seemingly positive advances in robotic technology are a harbinger of our forthcoming doom, but I guess if you're interested in a machine bringing you the soda you asked for, enjoy it while it lasts.

Here's a cool video from the research team at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics department (the Search-based Planning Laboratory), in which a robot bartender (the PR2 dual-arm mobile robot) is demonstrated. After a human makes a drink and snack selection, the robot can determine the proper area of where the items are located, as well as how far its arm is so it can properly grab the snack and drink choice.
