The world’s coolest ‘robot bartenders’

15th January, 2015 by Amy Hopkins


MonsieurMonsieur, an artificially intelligent robotic bartender, was first unveiled in the US in January last year following a successful crowd funding bid by its creator.

The device, described as an “intelligent cocktail vending machine”, is able to dispense up to 25 cocktails while choosing the perfect option for users according to their personal preferences.

Furthermore, when cocktail ingredients run out, the machine can email or text a local store to order more. It also has the ability to make drinks to order remotely via Bluetooth, wifi and Zigbee.

The prototype for Monsieur was given a significant funding boost by a string of investors, including NBA star Glen Davis, NFL player Derrick Morgan, Base Ventures, Paul Judge, TechSquare Labs and BIP Capital, meaning it could be launched in the US on-trade later this year.
