This is Somabar, a Wi-Fi connected robot bartender that cranks out craft cocktails in under 5 seconds. Yes, this is real life. The Kickstarter project has already exceeded its $50k goal by threefold so it’ll definitely come to market, but you’ve still got time to contribute if you want one for yourself. It’ll only set you back $400, which is a small price to pay for a daily reminder that you live in the future. Plus, it gets you drunk. No word on whether the appliance has been programmed to KILL KILL KILL ALL HUMANS or it will inevitably develop that ability, but who cares? It’s a robot bartender. We were all gonna die at some point anyway. This is like, totally worth it. I honestly can’t think of a better way to go. And believe me, I’ve tried!




Thanks to Dylan for the tip. He’s one of the co-creators of the Somabar aka a true hero for ensuring that at least we’ll be drunk during the robot apocalypse.

    This kind of takes the fun out of making drinks. What a hollow experience. “Here’s your cocktail…”

    sorry…i completely agree… bartending is an art and a profession… the whole mixology thing plus the fun and entertainment for your clients and guests.. but seems pretty cool… just love to pour my own

    Ya and none of that woulda happened had they treated them with respect. All the main replicant wanted was to experience life beyond their lifespan. Skynet’s pissed off at humanity because they were trying to shut it down for doing the thing they asked it to do, learn.

    I want to agree.. but like all art forms, I’d argue that some like to paint, and others prefer buying paintings; not everyone wants to be a mixologist, but many like to drink…
