Robotic Gas Pump Does All The Work For You

Because some people don’t actually like pumping gas (what’s wrong with them? The smell alone is worth it, not to mention the extra half gallon I can squeeze in the tank by pulling the nozzle almost all the way out), there’s an Autofuel robotic gas pump in operation at a service station in Vantaa, Finland. The system requires users to register their vehicle’s details like model, fuel type, payment method, and license plate, as well as install a special gas tank cap that the robot can remove. The future! Sure we were supposed to have flying cars by now, but hey, robotic gas pumps — that’s something. Something depressing, WHERE THE HELL IS MY JETPACK?

Thanks to my dad, who agrees Back to the Future II was the biggest lie ever told.
