Anyone who enjoys a cocktail but where prefer the mixing to be done by a professional, might be interested in a new device that has launched over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website this week in the form of the Barobot cocktail mixing robot. The open source Barobot cocktail mixing robot is equipped with over 1000 cocktail recipes to choose from, or offers the option to create your own cocktail recipe on the fly depending on your needs. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Barobot Robot project and see it in action.
We’ve seen cocktail robots before. Specifically, the one we had on stage at Disrupt NY 2013, which goes by the name of Monsieur and aims to automate drinks service. Fast forward a year, and say hello to Monsieur’s open source rival: Barobot. The Polish makers being this open, hackable automated cocktail machine have taken toKickstarter to raise £90,000 (~$151,500) in crowdfunds to get their ‘party in box’ plexiglass behemoth to market. Barobot aims to give you more time to chat with friends by taking the strain out of your drinks mixing, although not off of your counter top which is going to need to be considerably lengthy to accommodate its 88cm extent. It’s been designed to hold up to 12 bottles of the hard (or soft) stuff, dispensing the correct shots from each to mix your poison of choice. Which means you’re also going to need a pretty extensive drinks cabinet to get the most out of Barobot. It will apparently have more than 1,000 drinks in its database.
