Sake-serving ROBOTs!

Here’s a nice sake serving robot if you are into drinking soju or sake like us…

If you’ve always wanted a slave, but are too darned ethical to buy a live one, how about a handmade sake serving automata made from cherrywood and porcelain? These lovely little robots are all based on clockwork, and use technology dating from the Edo period. 1,050,000 JPY (including tax) and they take 40 days to make. You can read more about the history of Karakuri automata at Metafilter.

1. Wind up the doll and set the tea cup on the saucer.
2. It will move its legs alternately, shaking its head back and forth.. It will stop in front of the guest.
4. It will stand still while the guest is drinking..
5. When the guest returns the tea cup on the saucer, it will swivel around and return to its original location.

This doll is an updated model of the “Tea Serving Doll”.
It is able to stop in front of the guest without picking up the tea cup.
