In the Instagram reel by @superscientific, the content creator shows us how the machine actually works. He first takes a chilled glass from a nearby refrigerator and places it on the machine's dedicated receptacle. Above it, there is a notice that reads, "Caution: The glass will tilt. Do not touch the glass until the beer is completely filled." The machine does exactly what it says. The glass is seen tilting at two angles as it fills with beer. Once it is around 80-90% filled, the machine tops it with a certain amount of foam. As per the caption, this machine can be found at an airport lounge in Narita. Watch the full reel below:

The viral video has received a range of reactions online. It has caught the interest of many Instagram users, some of whom love the idea of such a machine. However, others are not completely convinced. They have especially criticised the foam addition.

Check out some of the reactions below:

"All beer lovers cry when they see this. NOT the proper way."

"The only reason this is a bad pour is cause the foam is added rather than created with the pour itself. Otherwise good. But it will never be a substitute for a proper human bartender."

"What's the point of tilting the glass when in the end it added the unwanted froth."

"It looks perfect and all, but it's like there's no connection. I prefer a man/woman pour the almost perfect beer for me instead."

"The German in me loves the over-engineering but hates the pour."

"This was what they meant when they said AI will destroy the world."

"That is amazing I want one!"

"But I enjoy the satisfaction of pouring my own."
