Meet your match, Basil the beer-delivering robot: BaR2-D2

Denver-based robot designers Jim and Louise Gunderson did pretty well when they invented Basil, a wicked smart beer-delivering robot. But they seem to have forgotten a cardinal rule in robot pop culture: Every robot is guaranteed by universal law to have an equally talented and somewhat similar-looking arch nemesis. And Basil's arch nemesis, it turns out, is the perfectly named BaR2-D2, shown in the video below.

Basil may have a fully functioning brain that allows him to identify objects in the real world, but BaR2-D2 is decked out in neon. Yes, Basil may have the ability to teach himself about the world, but BaR2-D2 has a six-bottle shot dispenser. Sure, Basil may pave the way for a brave new world of intelligent machines, but BaR2-D2 has a beer elevator. And did we note BaR2-D2 is covered in neon?

According to robot law, there's only one thing to do: Robot death match. Let the best drunken bot win.
