Matt and I took his droid to BarBot 2010 at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco last night.
BarBot is a celebration of cocktail culture and man-machine interface. Get a drink from an actual robot. Chat up a snarky electronic bartender. Listen to some graceful tunes being played by robotic music makers. And, after downing your sixth martini, you can finally admit that it’s the geeks who shall inherit the earth.
The event is hosted by Dave Calkins and Simone Davalos, fellow R2 Builders and the organizers of RoboGames.
Here’s Matt with his R2 serving some drinks
Here’s some of the bar tending Robots, both big and small, and made from all sorts of creative things like Lego and even triple action breast pumps.
This one one of the more fun interactive bots where you had to arm wrestle for your drink
