If you are an avid drinker, you just might love the idea of the BarBot slot machine, which rewards you with alcohol instead of money. The computer inside the machine has a pre-programed bartender to create your winning drink of choice.

The 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' themed BarBot slot machine was created by NYC Resistor as part of a hacking competition. The team of hackers had a budget of $3,000 and a three-week time period to convert a manufactured object into something with a different purpose.
