Does Microsoft Surface Know When To Cut You Off?

Seems clever enough, using the new Microsoft Surface tables to enable bartenders to keep the spirits flowing. But one must ask if the table will be programmed to also take into account when the receipient of the refreshment might need to be cut off due to enjoying happy hour just a bit too much?

Think about it. Is the bar tender alerted as to how many drinks the patron has had after Surface alerts the waitress that another round is clearly in order or instead, do we leave this up to technology entirely?

As far as I am concerned, I think the video pretty much says it all. The technology, while amazing, should be coupled by intelligent individuals to ensure that if Surface is one day used for such a thing, is backed up by people who will make sure no one is getting heavily intoxicated thanks in part to an interactive table.
