More news from the robots-taking-over-the-service-industry front: Bartendro, an automated cocktail mixing device, has a Kickstarter campaign. It’s an ultra-precise liquid dispenser running via Raspberry PI that’s accessible wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet. Attach a breathalyzer, ID scan, and credit card swipe and you’ve got yourself a complete robo-bartender. But can he listen to your troubles, too?
The Bartendro team breaks it down:
Bartendro is available in a variety of sizes, ranging from $299 to $5,000 Kickstarter rewards: the ShotBot, which dispenses one liquid shot, and the more impressive Bartendro 3 (three different liquids), 7 (seven), and 15 (I’ll let you guess).
You can also theoretically use Bartendro for:
- pancake/crepe bot
- coffee bot
- juice bot
- garden watering bot
- aquarium nutrient dosing
- automated chemistry/biology experiments
- recirculating pump for fast infusions
- new foodie creations
- beer brewing / wine making
