To get that perfect blend of mix for a cocktail, a robotic drink maker is just the ticket for dispensing precise amounts of each ingredient. The ShakeBot, an entry for the BarBot 2013 competition, can mix any three ingredient beverage, pouring out liquor through three urinating cherub sculptures.
Adding humor and class to the world of robot bartenders, ShakeBot harks back to the Baroque era of sculpture and fine arts when cherubs were a common motif. This robot combines high-tech precision, with the recipe for each beverage already measured out and built into its mechanical settings, with a romantic and almost saintly sculptural fountain design.
The Shakebot robotic drink maker would bring a sense of lightheartedness to a bar scene in a slightly sacrilegious way.
