"In 1977, it took about eight months for a slightly faster more refined mechanism to put punk in the window of Holt Renfrew. It's gotten faster ever since."
- William Gibson

Reggie the Bartending Machine  
  A mechanism able to mix drinks; a robot bartender.  

Like any good bartender, Reggie can even tell stories. And have special favorites among the patrons.

"Protect her, Max," said Reggie.

"Her?"

"The Cyborg de Milo," said Reggie. "She's half-robot. I feel a remarkable affinity toward her."

"You got the hots for a lady cyborg?" asked Max.

"Just do what I asked."
