My friends and I love mixing and trying new cocktails. I even enjoy posting the recipes for my favorite ones on Instagram. Sometimes though, I wish I had my own personal bartender who could prepare the drinks for us. Well, now that’s possible. The bartender I’d like to tell you about today doesn’t come with a bow tie and a big smile like you might expect. Instead, it comes in the form of the world’s first robotic bartender that you control with a smartphone app.
It’s called Somabar, and it looks surprisingly like any other appliance you might find in your kitchen. It will connect to your wifi and mix your favorite drinks in seconds. All you have to do is supply your new bartender with your favorite ingredients and voila, it will have the capability to make up to 300 different cocktails.
According to the creators of Somabar, the secret to making an extra tasty cocktail is in the mixing process. They’ve created a mixing technology that will mix your drink like nothing you’ve seen before.
Kickstarter explains it best:
The mixing comes from a combination of fluid dynamics, kinetic energy, and turbulence created by static vanes.
I’m not sure what that means exactly, but I definitely want to check it out firsthand.
Since this robotic bartender is controlled with a smartphone app, you’ll be able to not only mix your drink in seconds, but you’ll also be able to manage your inventory of ingredients, create new recipes (according to your personal preferences), adjust the strength or weakness of your cocktails and more.
I can understand why the Somabar team has raised over $240,000 on Kickstarter so far (at the time I’m writing this). It’s even more attractive since it fits right into the dishwasher for easy cleaning.
What more could you want in a robotic bartender? Well, I mean, aside from a bow tie and a big smile…
