The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Ernie – First Bartending Robot


Something from the comments: Thanks to Shifzr for pointing us to this amazing drink serving robot from the 1980s. They actually sampled Hal, “completely operational and all my circuits are functioning perfectly.” How else can you reply but to say, “Open the pod bay doors and give me a vodka tonic!”
