Robotic Bartender Assembles Your Drink, Monitors Alcohol Consumption

samzenpus posted about a year ago | from the spun-like-a-centrifuge-not-stirred dept.

Robotics 138

First time accepted submitter Sabine Hauert writes in with news about a robotic bartending system called Makr Shakr. "You're at a busy bar. You order your personalized cocktail through a smart phone app; a drink dispenser measures out the beverage according to your instructions and a Kuka robotic arm give it a shake (or stir), while another garnishes it with a slice of lemon; the made-to-order concoction is delivered to your waiting hand via a slick little ten-lane conveyor belt. The 'mixology system' tracks your order from start to finish: a large display behind the bar shows you the number of drinks ahead of yours in the queue, the current wait time, and lets you know when your drink is ready to be picked up. It also shows you what's popular to drink tonight among both the ladies and the gents in the crowd, and lets you influence drinking trends in real-time by incorporating your suggested tweaks on popular recipes."

Another job is lost. (5, Funny)

Head hanging low, the ex-bartender heads down to the welfare office to apply for the entitlement. Your cheap night at the bar is followed by an enormous tax bill.

Well at least this bar tender will just require some wi-fi and cracking by a script kiddie probably to violate all of it's directives and provide free booze. No personal skills required. Fits right in with the inhumane detachment of people these days.

Who knows maybe you will be able to just post something on facebook to fool it.

Don't think so. Although it's common to imagine a bartender as someone who just pours drinks, it's just as possible to say a programmer is someone who types stuff into a computer to do some work. It doesn't even scratch the surface of any actual professional work.

I'd say the robot would be good enough to do pre-mix drinks, for people who don't particularly care for the drink. Sort of like a vending machine. For actual bartending work involving complex cocktail production, where the bartender needs to have extremely high perception, flexibility, stability, control in mixing the drinks in just the perfect timing, temperature, amount, AND on top of that being social and friendly with ability to reply to the drinkers who sit at the bar? Nah, I think bartenders will still hold a job for a long while yet.

At least, until we get robots that pass turing test. Then we're all fucked.

Re:Another job is lost. (2)

flayzernax (1060680) | about a year ago | (#43748419)

In high class establishments or under the radar establishments that are more or less community driven yes.

At the meat market or in low class establishments. They might as well have fending machines selling whatever drugs are in vogue.

But if I was to go to a 'bar' I would be genuinely interested in meeting people who know how to order a drink vs "just give me whatever will fuck me up". Haven't seen a place like that in the states in awhile.

Well, except for that last part, I'd expect the robots to immediately do a better job. The last part can be handled by an ordinary member of the wait staff without lots of experience at tending bar. This doesn't really remove the need for the people, but it does remove the need for the training and experience, which means the pay is likely to go down.

Re:Another job is lost. (1)

pokoteng (2729771) | about a year ago | (#43748741)

Again, you're underestimating the careful care a (good) bartender has to follow when preparing for drinks. Say for instance, the recipe calls for lemon juice. A typical implementation of a robot would be to have lemon juice prepared earlier, but that has different taste profile to freshly juiced lemon. Then ok, let's have a juicer... except are you going to also roll the lemon carefully first to bring out the juice and flavour before cutting it carefully for the wedge? Or are you going to shred/press it? How are you going to do careful presentation work on the slice, like zesting it? Carefully pinch the skin to bring out the oils from the skin, but not actually put it in the drink?

And hell, that's just lemons.

I can't imagine having machines that are yet delicate enough to do this quickly, that are also small enough to fit in a bar, as well as being so versatile. Most likely, for a while yet, only humans can do the task considering how delicate the work is.

Look:
-the bar on roof of the Hard Rock hotel will have human bartenders to appeal to the ego of the people who need subordinates to feel a sense of status in life.
-the bars which cater to clients who want to gawk at the attactive bar tender will still have humans

For the rest of us eating with our wives at buffet's, we will gladly accept a consistent drink from a robot that we don't have to tip & which gives even-handed service to all customers; Faster and for less money.

Re:Another job is lost. (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year ago | (#43748947)

All of that actually sounds remarkably easy to automate, Just have a chamber with a conveyer belt that wraps around the lemon, half of the belt is regular belt half of the belt has microblades embedded in it for zesting, squeeeze tight to roll it then drop it cut and juice, or advance the belt to the zesting portion and bring some form of spindle like a lathe in to hold the lemon, tighten the belt up and zest.

Actually its more of an engineers response, I'm just too drunk to give you schematics already ready to go and I didn't even bring up that unless you're in an extremely upscale bar the bartender is just going to pull a pre-sliced lemon out of a bucket of ice, as in around here the restaurants that are $75 a person just to get in the door are pulling a pre-sliced lemon out of a bucket of ice

The selfishness of capitalism is on its way out, it is simply to primitive a system for modern humans.

Also, until a robot can determine you're drunk, and ensure it's not serving booze to an under-age drinker... etc., this is just a toy.

Clearly incorrect, as I can provide one example that trumps this statement: Jesus.

Jesus not only had a hand in wine manufacture, but was also recorded drinking it. Even in Islam Jesus is referred to as a prophet who is to return, so clearly the drinking of wine [an alcoholic beverage] is not forbidden by god. Now, what was forbidden was the drinking of alcohol to excess, and I think most of us would know why.

Theoretically the robotic bartender would be seen as a good thing from a biblical standpoint, as it can be used to monitor ones own consumption more accurately.

If you want to tip, then tip the really poor people who struggle by on rock-bottom minimum wage and go mostly unappreciated: cleaners/janitors, maids, wait staff at small cafes and restuarants.

Kill a nun? Good job. Kill a taxi full of nuns on vacation? You should get a medal (pity about the driver, but collateral damage). Drive a bus full of nuns on vacation into a volcano, ensuring they all die, and not only will they get to hell faster (via the convenient fires below), but you'll be rescued by GOD ALMIGHTY and whisked up to heaven where you will live forever basking in HIS glory.

Even better, see if you can't convince the entire Catholic Church hierarchy to be on the bus with you (shouldn't be too hard, just make sure the nuns are young and pretty).

And for an encore, exterminate all the priests, imams, rabbis, gurus and other religious "leaders".

lets hope the hackers don't get into this (1)
