"It can be driven around by remote control and provides you with a frosty 
beer whenever you want one."

That's not a robot.  It is an RC car.
The Boston Dynamics clearly have aiming issues, but that's part of the charm. ;)
“Piss bot is working flawlessly. 35 percent of the time,”

When they finally nail the aim, 1 command will be it. I have to wonder, can any Boston Dynamics robot stand still? They appear to have a "prancing" mode whenever doing anything from the limited videos I've seen.

Helpful devices that make it harder to get beering than just doing it 
yourself aren't really helpful devices.
