We recently told you that it’s predicted 2016 could be the year of the robot…

And now it looks like that theory may be coming true.

Meet Drinky – the robot who will down shots with you like there’s no tomorrow, then wake up the next morning with a banging headache and full of regret.

South Korean inventor Eunchan Park came up with the idea for the robot, who will raise it’s arm in the air to cheer before doing a shot with you.

So if you can’t get friends for pre-drinks, don’t worry. Drinky has got you covered.

He posted on his YouTube video:

This robot’s name is Drinky. He drinks really well. On Christmas in 2012, I drank Soju (Korean alcohol) alone because I had no girl friend at that time. Drinking alone was definitely terrible. So I couldn’t drink anymore. Lastly, 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 to be changed. Wow. So, I could finally find the secret of taste of alcohol totally depends on existence of partner. This is why I made this robot.
