Setting the equipments.
With occasional little helps from her master.
Setting the beans.
She's got strength enough to grind the beans.
The fact that she never smiles only adds to her charm.
She can even wait between drips to allow time to brew.
Another little help from the master.
She looks to be so concentrated.
Take a sip!
Isn't she marvelous? Regrettably, the creator informs us on his blog that this short video actually took three days in shooting and there were some "cheating" going on behind the scene, for example, things she looks to be carrying are tied or screwed to her arm since her fingers don't really work, and the mill is empty when she looks to be grinding beans. But the video's great anyway, you can't help wishing someday to own a cute little robot like this.
"Hina" means chick (as in baby birds, not women). The robot is 36cm (about 14 inch) tall, weighs about 1.1kg (2.4 lb). You can see some more pics and details of the robot here.
