CanBot: the Wii remote-controlled beer that comes to you

By now we've seen a number of takes on the concept of the robot butler that brings you beer. But this latest creation from Japan called the CanBot takes the concept to the next level with a beer can that actually transforms into a robot itself.

Developed by amateur roboticist Ron Tajima, when prompted via Wii remote control, the seemingly normal can of beer suddenly comes to life and walks using either three legs, or rolling on its side. You can see the amazingly feat of brew meets robotics in the video below.
