A South Korean inventor has made every drinking man’s dream come true. Working with his wife, Park Eun Chan created the world’s first robot drinking buddy – amicably named Robot Drinky. The level of mimicking a companion is unparalleled, apparently.

The robot is a real bag of tricks. It will clink glasses with you, down his drink and really create the feeling of drinking with a real companion.

The only real maintenance you have to carry out is emptying the alcohol jar that makes up the lower half of Robot Drinky’s body.

The video, first posted to Facebook, has taken the internet by storm, which may be an indicator that there’s a few men feeling really down in the dumps this New Year’s Eve.
