Dutch Robot Gropes Your CarS

The Dutch have built a robot that looks a little Terminator, but is just there to help pump gas while you wait. invented at a cost of $111,100, Tankpitstop is a robotic arm with sensors that figure out what kind of car you drive, and therefore what sort of fuel cap you have and what type of gas you need. Then it opens the flap, unscrews the cap, and pretty much does everything you would do if you were pumping, minus the beef jerky and Red Bull. Tankpitstop should be dispatched to gas stations in the Netherlands by the end of the year. But how long before we see a malicious gas-siphoning variant? Image from deOndernemer.
