The big buzz this week at the Roboexotica event in San Francisco are robots that mix drinks. Specifically, a robot dubbed “Chapek” is capable of making a small variety of mixed drinks: gin and orange juice (laid back), a gin martini, a vodka martini and a screwdriver. Hilarity ensued during a press run when Chapek spills a screwdriver all over himself and his circuitry.
Other robots that can be seen at Roboexotica include: a mind reading martini maker, which measures the alpha waves in ones brain to determine how dry the martini should be, as well as a robot that has the ability to flip cigarettes into peoples mouths. Awesome. Robotic cancer rules!
