It’s not just science fiction anymore, the future of bartending may have arrived. This past Wednesday, Google held an I/O conference where MIT’s SENSEable City Lab debuted a new bartending robot. The robot is capable of mixing up to 100 different drinks, both virgin and alcoholic, from smartphone-enabled commands and orders given to it. The process is almost as simple as using a smartphone app to order your martini.
The Makr Shakr comes equipped with three robotic arms, allowing the apparatus to shake, stir and pour. All customers need to do is choose the ingredients they’re craving, from the spirits and liquors to the juices and garnishes. After they punch in their order, an animated infographic pops up showing whose drink is up next, along with what’s in it. So, as patrons are hemming and hawing over what to imbibe, they can improvise based off what the stranger two stools down is sipping on.
