New cocktail robot created for US bartenders

Cocktails can be created at the touch of a button with a new device described as a “bartending robot”, which has recently launched in the US.

Butler3000
The Butler3000, said to have been “created by bartenders, for bartenders”, offers 16 drinks combinations

Said to be the world’s first commercial “bartending robot”, the Butler3000 offers 16 beverage combinations using any smartphone or tablet.

Created by Florida-based designer Rick Valez, the machine features four bottles which create the mixed drinks combinations. A web-enabled interface controls the ability to select a drink from any web browser.

“People gather around the Butler3000 at a party just to play with the machine,” said Valez. “The machine has been used at events with real bartenders, and the bartenders are bored.

“Guests would rather choose from over a dozen cocktails to pour their own perfectly-measured beverage.”

The Butler3000, which is said to have been “created by bartenders, for bartenders”, features a streamlined design meant for industrial use and easy cleaning.

As a special offer, the first 100 machines carry an RRP of US$799.

Another “robot bartender”, called Monsieur, was launched in the US earlier this year. It uses an app to calculate the ideal cocktail for drinkers depending on their preferences.
