LevitronCertainly one of the most creative inventions included on this list, the Levitron takes the robot bartender to another level by using sound waves to levitate droplets of alcohol drinkers can then lick out of the air.

So-far, the machine has created a levitating gin and tonic and a levitating Bloody May. It was created by Charlie Harry Francis, founder of experimental events company Lick Me I’m Delicious, in collaboration with Professor Bruce Drinkwater of Bristol University.
