This Cocktail Robot Uses Facial Recognition and Shoots Alcohol

The DNA Lounge in San Francisco hosted their 4th annual “Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge” this weekend. One of the robot contestants that stood out was “The Kamikaze Blaster” a bot that uses facial recognition to deliver shots without a glass. A rain jacket and bib seem to be in order for this one. No details on how the setup works, but it sure makes me want to live in San Francisco.

  1. Oh sweet, I’m on the Adafruit blog! Cocktail Robotics Grand Championship, such a long name, was a blast this year. The Kamikaze Blaster really raised the bar of competition, but there were plenty of other robots shaking things up too. BTW, the photo up top was taken by Christine Clarke.
