A Lonely Inventor Created the Ultimate Drinking Buddy

Contributed by

Drinking alone has never been fun for anyone—until now. Inventor Euchan Park has found a solution for the solitary drinking blues by inventing Robot Drinky, a drinking buddy that’s always ready to down a shot (or two) with you.

“On Christmas in 2012, I drank Soju (Korean alcohol) alone because I had no girlfriend at that time. Drinking alone was definitely terrible, so I couldn’t drink anymore […] I put an extra glass in front of me and poured Soju into it. And then, I cheered by myself with the glass of Soju, as though there was someone in front of me. Surprisingly, after that, the taste became totally changed! […] So, I [found] the secret of taste of alcohol totally depends on [the] existence of a partner. This is why I made this robot,” Park wrote in the description of a YouTube video he posted.


Drinky clinks glasses with you, downs a real shot (which is dispensed into his clear jar belly so you can drink it yourself later), and then happily dances and blushes.

Sadly, Drinky is not being mass-produced, but until it is, saying cheers to the video counts, right?
