Working in a bar could get a whole lot more hands-off if LayerNation’s “El Tirador” machine takes off. It’s a contraception that makes it very easy to make layered drinks. You just have to load the bottles on top, put the shot glasses under the retractable straws and watch as it makes up to 4 drinks within 20 seconds. A touch screen lets you select what you want to make and yeah… that’s about it. You can watch the video below to see how it’s done, but it looks pretty slick. El Tirador means The Shooter in spanish, and the device was demonstrated last year at the Young Entrepreneurs Society network event in Delft. It’s also being tested in Europe and the company hopes it’ll be used to serve soccer fans their drinks during the Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.
So there appears to be no immediate plans for commercialization stateside, but anyone interested in the tech is free to contact them for more information.
