The Somabar robotic bartender project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website and was looking to raise $50,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. However the project has already passed $100,000 in fund in just it first few days. Its creators explain :
“When you press that button on the app, your SOMABAR will take the ingredients from scratch, infuse bitters (if you are in the mood) and dynamically mix them in precise quantities using positive displacement pumps before pouring out your craft cocktail in less than 5 seconds.
The mixing comes from a combination of fluid dynamics, kinetic energy, and turbulence created by static vanes. What that means is fewer moving parts to maintain, as well as fast and perfectly mixed cocktails. Our on-board software and sensors make it easy to make new recipes and manage your inventory (liquid gold).”
