Robotic Bartender? Yes please! Meet Monsieur

12 Nov

Let me start off by saying, I am not writing this post because I know people involved in this project. I am writing this post because this is a damn cool product. What is said product? Meet Monsiuer, the artificially intelligent robotic bartender that makes cocktails. Yes, that is for real. Here is deal: A mechanical engineer and a computer engineer came together to co-found Monsieur after a friend complained about the lack of bartenders for a private event and the lack of consistent quality when hiring one. The idea then blossomed from there.

Monsieur can have:
12 unique profiles,
with 25 cocktails within each profile,
it can make 150 drinks without refilling, and
has the ability to make 300 different cocktails

As I stated previously, Monsieur is intelligent. That means it learns its users, it offers real-time monitoring and provides business analytics so businesses can keep track of what is being served and forecast based on trends. According to its Kickstarter page, Monsieur has a touchscreen user interface that is powered by Android and connected to a microcontroller that orchestrates thermoelectric coolers, peristaltic pumps, sensors, and other mechanical components to deliver precision mixology. Monsieur can interface with your home automation networks via WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, or Zigbee to determine who is home and connect to users. Monsieur is connected to our cloud-based servers in order to receive new cocktail updates and theme packages and get recommendations from Monsieur peer network. We are also considering releasing a 3rd party API to allow developers to extend Monsieur even further.” I’m no sure what a lot of that means, but it sounds scientific.

If you are a bar/business/or just plain interested in having a robotic bartender: check them out on KickStarter or you can pre-order from the website.

Congrats to the team on producing one bad-ass bartender and I hope to see Monsieur in the near future!
