Photos From BarBot 2012—One More Night (Tonight) in San Francisco

Windell and Lenore of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories clued me into BarBot 2012, which started last night and continues tonight. If your dream is to have robots pour you mixed drinks, this is where you need to be tonight.

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.

These robots don’t clean the carpets. What they will do is much, much better. They make you a drink! Let your roommate do the vacuuming. These bots have got better programming on their mind.

I'm a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I'm not tinkering, I'm probably editing a book for Maker Media.
