Heineken Bot is best beer serving robot we’ve seen in a while

It’s always a wonderful idea to have a bot serving beer. One, it would never ask you your pint count and two, it would never ask you to slow down. We’ve seen a host of beer serving bots in the past, but the Heineken Bot by Middlesex University is by far the best at the task. A miniature keg on wheels, the Heineken Bot is devised to move autonomously in a preprogrammed area. It has sensors mounted on top, when a hand is waved over it the bot stops to pour you a drink. ‘Just place a cup in the arm, and the bot will fill it to the brim with the frothy lager.’ Displayed at the London's Kinetica Art Fair recently, the bot is worth the glimpse, so follow the jump to see it in action.
