Robot Sommelier? Will We Need Humans Anymore?

Pretty soon we won't need humans for anything... NEC has developed the first robot sommelier- that can accurately assess a wine's type and ingredients by simply holding a sensor over the bottle. In addition to wines, the robot can differentiate between different kinds of fruits and cheeses... I guess, I need help telling me what is cheddar and what is an apple when I've been drinking that much wine.
My real last question is- how big is it? It looks like the size of a LEGO piece and you have to get a dripper to pour the wine into the "sensor" glass... so handy that I can just throw it in my purse!
