Robot bar tender records wedding guests getting drunk

Having an open bar usually means hiring at least one bar tender. But this hack does away with those labor costs (and someone to make sure your teenage cousins aren’t drinking) by putting a robot in charge of things. But the fun doesn’t stop there. One of the features of this bartender is that it records a 30 second video every time it dispenses a beverage. We’d image these get a bit funny as the night wears on before taking a dramatic turn into sadness.

The link above shares a ton of details on the device so make sure that you click-through the different pages in the navigation bar. The mechanical page shows off all of the effort that went into designing the machine in Solidworks. The ingredients start on the top layer in inverted bottles. Each feeds to a valve which has its own nozzle. Like a round version of the Inebriator, a glass is placed in a trolley at the bottom that pivots around the center of the machine. Once it gets back to the opening in the acrylic case you can grab your drink, give it a quick stir, and off you go.

Check out the video after the break to get a look at the user interface which includes that recorded video greeting for the happy couple.

    Cool, but you’d need like 10 of them to serve fast enough at any of the weddings I’ve been to.

    Yeah. The bot’s primary purpose was to record memorable video congratulations from the friends and family of the bride and groom. A nice secondary benefit was it could serve you booze =)

    Fortunately at this wedding there were two lines, one for bartender service and one for mixed drink from a robot service.

    Only one thing, they used a timer only or the dispenser == more alcohol when it is newly refilled since higer flow.
