Futurama may have set an unreasonably high bar for the next-generation bending unit, but Opton’s T-WIN20 KDM inches slightly closer to the perfect drinking buddy of tomorrow. Unlike traditional robot benders, the T-WIN20 KDM can process and bend objects without the need for human assistance. It won’t run off (or brew) Beer like MomCorp’s premier bending unit, but forgoing meatbag assistance is a start. Check out the ¥15,500,000 ($194,000) pipe mangler after the break.
