Future Tech: 

This robot bartender makes the perfect G&T


The robot bartender knows over 1,000 cocktail recipes. How many do you know?

Here’s one bartender you won’t have to tip. That’s because it’s a robot, designed to mix the perfect drink every time.

Called Barobot, it sends your glass along a platform, filling it with exactly the right measures of your chosen concoction. It comes with more than 1,000 cocktail recipes, so it’s sure you know your favorite tipple. And if it doesn’t, you can create your own on the fly using the accompanying app on your smartphone.

Not only does it mean you’ll have the perfect drink every time, it also leaves you free to get on with the important business of entertaining guests.

You won’t have to worry about spillage, as it has built-in weight and magnetic field sensors, and won’t pour unless it senses the glass is in the correct place. And if a guest gets out of hand and does spill something, two removable trays will protect your furniture and floor.

It’s the perfect party piece too – it’s illuminated with more than 100 LEDs that you can set to a theme, or synchronize to music. And it’s controlled using a tablet, so anyone can take the reigns and rustle up a round of drinks.

If you’re not afraid of a bit of DIY, you can even make a Barobot yourself. The people behind it have posted a full list of components and even an assembly manual online. Unfortunately, you’ll have to buy the bottles of liquor yourself.

Barobot is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, so if you like the idea, pledge some money, and it could be tending your next party. We’ll raise a glass to that.
