BarBot 2013.75: Robot Lovers, Start Your Livers

BarBot

Have a bar bot-in-progress on your workbench, or perhaps already whirring around the countertops of your kitchen, dispensing cocktails like a Rosie the Robot commissioned for a Mad Men 2050s spin-off series? Well, the same crew that hosted the latest edition of the annual cocktail robotics BarBot: Automatic event back in March of this year will be hosting another event this October.

From “BarBot:Automatic“:

These robots don’t clean the carpets. What they will do is much, much better. They make you a drink! Let your roommate do the vacuuming. These bots have got better programming on their mind.

If there is one thing that bright, over-21-year-old hackers and robotics enthusiasts enjoy doing, it is finding rather oblique and entertaining ways to combine their passions for technology with the activity of a good party. Throw in a tendency to pursue the invention of rather inspired character — and behavior! — designs and this bar night + science fair activity is almost guaranteed to entertain. (Just be wary of the ole BarBot trick to cheat by spiking their cocktails with absinthe and other delightful … tongue-anesthetics.)

Sign up your humans and your robots here! Via Evil Mad Scientist.

Way back in March 2013, we had a little shindig called Barbot: Automatic.

It was a howling success.

It was such fun that we are fixing to throw another one, this time with the team work and under the auspices of The Bay Area Science Festival (which is in itself crazy nifty and hella scientific).

So, for your perusal let us present:

  • BARBOT 2013.75
  • Friday and Saturday
  • October 25-26th, 2013
  • 7pm-12am
  • at the Splendid
  • Oddfellows Hall
  • 26 7th Street (at Market), San Francisco
  • 21+
  • $25

Mark your calendars. Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. Slip hand-drawn fliers into the hands of folks on Muni, giggling softly to yourself and making too much eye contact. Whatever it takes.

  1. Our BarBot dreams were sadly crushed by the man. Coca-Cola sent us a cease and desist letter back in 2005 for infringing on their patents. Turns out they were getting ready to reveal their Coca-Cola Freestyle machine.

    I wish I had all the electronics Adafruit has to offer today while building that bar!
