Designboom  reports

The robot, named Justine, is the first result of an 6.3-million-euro EU project called DEXMART , led by Naples university professor Bruno Siciliano . justine’s arms and hands are precise enough to duplicate some of the movements of human hands. in particular, justine can make instant coffee.

Now that’s a major scientific failure if even I say one. How can Prof. Siciliano show his face on the streets of Naples? How does the European Commission tolerate this colossal waste of public funds? 6.3-million-euro and Justine can’t make a proper Espresso?
