The BarBot combines two ultimate sins in one unique machine; it’s a gambling slot machine that dispenses alcohol when you win! Winner of a hacker competition, the creator NYC Resistor gave it a Fear and Loathing theme (very appropriate) and reprogrammed it to dispense cocktails.
The BarBot doesn’t just dispense any old cocktail however, you have to get a winning combination of traditional cocktail ingredients on the three wheels. A variety of spirits and mixers are connected via pressurized tubes powered by a microcontroller and solenoid valves. If you’re thinking you could do with one of these in your home bar, think again, the whole process took 320 hours and cost $3000!
