There's two things that bother me about this.

One, that's got to be the most inefficient way to open a bottle of wine in the history of time.

And two, this guy is a effing mechanical genius and he's spending his life on this stuff instead of bio-mechanical legs for Hammer, or other inventions to better mankind.

Jo would have shot me if I took that long to pour her a glass of wine!!
