The force has a way of manifesting our most sincere desires: no it’s not the holy grail but it is an officially licensed R2-D2 32 ounce ceramic beer stein with metal hinged lid!
Do robots dream of awesome beer? There have been a lot of studies recently about AI dream simulations, AI poetry, and artificial intelligence created poetry and art. But how does any of this compare to an R2-D2 beer stein? What could be better on a hot summer day, or after a long one working with the powers that be! This is the droid you are looking for!
Pinocchio became a real boy after he proved himself to be brave, truthful and unselfish. Well, send me a droid full of my favorite hops, and after a few of them I can bestow personhood status on such a likeable automaton!
Does he meet Asimov’s 3 Laws of Robotic behavior? Let’s investigate:
1) A robot must not cause a human to come to harm, or through inaction, allow a human to be harmed.
**PASS** – by bringing beers the robot can ease the suffering (harm) caused to a human by tyrant bosses, or other such daily stressors.
2) A robot must obey orders given to it by humans, except when such orders would cause the breaking of the first rule.
**PASS** – this R2-D2 beer stein will not object to you having it provide you cool beverages and also will not object when you decide you have had enough!
3) A robot must protect it’s own existence, so long as in so doing it doesn’t interfere with the first or second laws.
**PASS** this sturdy mug is made out of high grade ceramic material and has a strong metal hinge for opening the top covering, protecting both itself, your drink, and your emotional happiness. It clearly passes all criteria!
What a great and functional gift for any Star Wars fan! Holds 32 ounces of beer, wine, pop or anything else you care to fill him with.
Make today the day you (finally) get your hands on your own Star Wars R2-D2 Beer Mug with Hinged Lid.
