Jim Beams AIpowered Assistant Pours You Shot After Shot

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. To quote LMFAO, “If you not drunk ladies & gentlemen. Get ready to get…” Let’s pretend the following lyric is just “drunk.” And while we’re at it, let’s also pretend they wanted you to do it with some high-tech help.Anybody can pour shots, but to put some real geek stank on things you can’t go wrong with an AI-powered, liquor-dispensing robot. That’s exactly what the crew at Jim Beam has cooked up just in time for the holiday season.His name is JIM, and there’s a long list of advantages he has over more all-purpose assistants like Alexa, Siri, Cortana, and Bixby. Jim Beam provided this handy chart for reference:No, JIM can’t tell you what the weather’s like outside, but he will tell you how to best enjoy bourbon. Well, he’ll tell you to drink it “any damn where you please,” but that’s about as much detail you really need if you’re gearing up for a round or three of bourbon shots.That — and the other no-nonsense advice — the AI decanter dispenses is voiced by Jim Beam master distiller Fred Noe, the seventh generation of the Beam family to do the job. Fred has been in charge of making bourbon at Jim Beam for ten years now.Lest you think that JIM is just a viral publicity stunt, you really can order one over on the Jim Beam website for the ridiculously low price of $34.90. They’re only offering a very limited number, however, so you’ll have to move fast. This thing will probably sell out quicker than those kegs of ranch dressing did.You’ll also need to be of legal drinking age and prepared for a bit of disappointment. Some of JIM’s functionality depends on 3G connectivity and that will quit working halfway through 2018… at which point he’ll revert to being a regular old decanted, though one that provided plenty of amusement for a good six months.last_img read more
