All I want for Christmas is…

There’s nothing takes the fun out of Christmas for our resident curmudgeon quite like having to keep getting up to go to the fridge every half an hour for a fresh can and some ice for his dram.

Wouldn’t it be amazing though if somebody invented a machine that went to the fridge for you and brought your aperitif of choice back on a silver tray? Well, guess what…

A company called servicerobots.com has launched the very dab. Unlike Mrs UTC, this wee bad boy will go to the fridge as often as your heart desires – and your liver can cope with.

OK, technically it’s a champagne robot but UTC is sure that with a wee bash with a hammer and twist with a screwdriver it could be reconfigured to serve cans of Tennent’s Lager and glasses of Grouse with ice instead.
