We love EMSL so much, it makes us want to drink (more)….

Barbot 2011, the cocktail robotics exhibition, is happening on Friday and Saturday nights this weekend– April 1 and 2 –in San Francisco. If you haven’t been to one of these events (and you happen to like both cocktails and robots), let me tell you: you are missing out.

Last year we built the aptly named Drink Making Unit for the event. The Drink Making Unit used three -ahem- food-safe pumps to craft white russians, and was quite a hit at the show– especially amongst people who recognized the pumps.

This year, we’ve designed a brand new bartending machine, Drink Making Unit 2.0, which we are pleased to unveil today, and unleash upon the world this weekend.

Aside from the once-again-apt-but-not-very-descriptive name, Drink Making Unit 2.0 has very little in common with last year’s machine. The mechanism is all new, and features elements borrowed from sources as diverse as pet stores, chemistry labs, and Japanese gardens. It dispenses any six fluids (up from three), in metered and selectable quantities, and also sports an all-new extra-snazzy control panel.

  1. This would be such a fun event to attend. Alas, I will be attending a double funeral instead. I could really use the ear of robot bartender about now.

  2. it’s cool and i like it but i’m wondering if it’s limited in the kinds of drinks it can make
    and you’d always have to only add the ammount in multiples of the graduated cylinder, some drinks might call for different ratios or smaller ammounts than you could do
    although, it is only 10ml, so i guess your drink wouldn’t be off by too much

    it’s pretty cool
