Bartendro: The Mixologist Of The Robocalypse

bill-swift - March 7, 2013

Say hello to Bartendro, the bartender that will be serving celebratory cocktails after the robot uprising. Bartendro is a robot mixologist that can pour a drink in less than 10 seconds. He was created by a company called Party Robotics, which I can only assume is run by the hot blond Cylon from Battlestar Gallactica. Right now it's on Kickstarter. You can get the smaller Shotbot for $249 or the big 'un for $2499. While it's a cool gadget, I have a few problems with this. First of all, are you that friggin' lazy that you can't pour your own drinks? If you are buying this thing you are presumably going to put it behind your Jimmy Buffet themed home bar. Do you really think you're impressing your lame suburban golf buddies with this things? Secondly, who thought it was a good idea to give a robot control over mixing precise combinations of liquids to create compounds for human consumption? When the robocalypse comes, (and it's coming), this Bartendro will be mixing the poisons and neurotoxins that will wipe out humanity. Thanks a lot Kickstarter for another brilliant product launch.
