Afraid that if you leave the room you’ll miss the best play of the game? Now you don’t need to move your rear end in order to grab the next brewski. BREWSTER was developed to fetch cold beers from the fridge and deliver them to you automatically.
The robot started as a roomba but has been heavily repurposed with the addition of a mechanical arm on top of the chassis. This not only lets BREWSTER grip a can of beer, but it can first open the mini fridge and reach far enough inside to get one from the back. This requires no modification to the refrigerator, but the low clearance of the roomba does call for a mini-fridge sitting at floor level. Check out a demo run in the video after the break. We think the current version is running on a pre-coded route; this project is just waiting for a spin-off that has mapping and machine vision.
The alternative to this single can delivery would be to make the entire icebox into a robot.
