Computer Served as Minister at Wedding

We have heard of people referring to computers as "friends" and we have even heard of a computer being the "best man" at a wedding. That said, this is the first time we've seen a computer serve as the minister of a wedding.

The computer will greet the couple's 30 or so guests in a mechanical, robotic voice, give a little history about how they met and then go through the ceremony. The virtual minister, nicknamed "Rev. Bit," also will crack a joke or two. "If anyone here has anything to say that might change their minds or has any objections, they do not want to hear it and I will not recognize your objections since Miguel has programmed me to only recognize his commands," said the program during a preview that Hanson played on his home computer.
