BarBot, the third annual festival of Cocktail Robotics is returning to San Francisco this month!
From the website:
In a world where robots and humans struggle together in the fight against boredom. . .
Only one event ends up with the robots dancing â€œThe Humanâ€ while the meat puppets (you) end up singing the praises of RoboBartenders.
This February, come hang out with some alternate life-forms at BarBot 2010 – the third annual festival of Cocktail Robotics!
BarBot is a celebration of cocktail culture and man-machine interface. Get a drink from an actual robot. Chat up a snarky electronic bartender. Listen to some graceful tunes being played by robotic music makers. And, after downing your sixth martini, you can finally admit that itâ€™s the geeks who shall inherit the earth.
These robots donâ€™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.
