A New Kind of Bartender: The Barbot!

A bartending robot created by local hacker collective NYC Resistor served drinks at Pacific Standard

NYC Resistor's barbot, a robot made from a Japanese slot machine that serves patrons a mixed drink randomly selected from its database, was installed Tuesday at on Fourth Avenue.

The robot was created for Hackerspace Challenge, a contest sponsored by VIMBY and Scion, and included entrants from a variety of DIY-type groups from around the country. NYC Resistor's barbot took first place.

The award-winning robot will be serving drinks again at "The Interactive Show," an NYC Resistor event on Saturday, May 7 at 8 p.m.

It would be awesome of the Barbot actually punched one of these yuppies in the face.

Geez, what an annoying hipster bitch. You'd think the barbot would slap the shit out of her.

Look at us, we are soo cool!, watch us as we get mom and dad to pay our rent in Brooklyn for 2500 a month and send us the check from Wisconsin every month. Watch us as we displace older residents and look down on them as we are so cool and artsy!..we slap anything we make with "made in Brooklyn" to give us street cred in our nabe.
