The world’s coolest ‘robot bartenders’

15th January, 2015 by Amy Hopkins


Butler3000Said to be the world’s first commercial bartending robot, the Butler3000 was created by Florida-based designer Rick Valez and launched in the US in August last year.

The Butler3000 offers 16 beverage combinations using any smartphone or tablet, featuring four bottles which create the mixed drinks.

Said to have been “created by bartenders, for bartenders”, the machine has a streamlined design meant for industrial use and easy cleaning.

“The machine has been used at events with real bartenders, and the bartenders are bored,” said Valez. “Guests would rather choose from over a dozen cocktails to pour their own perfectly-measured beverage.”
