Lucas123 writes "According to a Reuters' story, Dutch inventors today took the wraps off a $111,100 car-fueling robot they say is the first of its kind. After registering the car as it pulls up to the pump, the machine matches your fuel cap design with those in a database and your car's fuel types, and then a robotic arm fitted with multiple sensors extends from a regular gas pump, "opens the car's flap, unscrews the cap, picks up the fuel nozzle and directs it towards the tank opening, much as a human arm would, and as efficiently." Would you like green stamps with that?"
