Countertop Robotic Bartender Mixes Drinks In Seconds

December 29, 2014


Somabar is a countertop robotic bartender that can mix perfectly proportioned drinks in less than five seconds using the six liquid ingredients of your choosing. You just fill up the six reservoirs ("Soma pods") with your choice of booze and mixers, use the app to tell the machine what's where, and it creates a list of cocktails it can make based on what you've included. You can pre-order one now for $400, but they'll cost $500 after the already funded Kickstarter campaign ends. Personally, I like making cocktails by hand. That way I can make them exactly the way I want them. I was actually making some Moscow mules last night. Then I ran out of ginger beer and was just making glasses of vodka and a mess in my apartment. Still, you know what the best thing about a robot bartender is though? "You don't have to tip?" Can't catch you stealing bottles. Plus won't try to take your girlfriend home at the end of the night.

Keep going for a couple more pictures and the Kickstarter video.



Thanks to lilco, who agrees the best drink is a stiff one. Some goes for penises.

    This reminds me of the Neverhood where you had to mix the correct cocktail to make yourself big/small.

    Hey GW, did you write a post about a simliar product before? I swore I've seen something like this, but different. Maybe it was just a dream about a sexy Alabamian VTech alum with a concupiscence for dinosaurs and rational fear of robots who blogged about a single machine that can make a variety of beverages with the press of a button or two.

    So to get a drink from this damned thing at a party you have find the drunk guy with the smartphone. Sounds like a challenge.

    Yes, but will it blend?

    I said shaken, not splurred!

  • I'm glad they included the classic infomercial idiot who "simply can't even". No new product demo is complete without showing how impossible life has been up to this point.
