Making tasty cocktails can take a little bit of skill, which is why many people just opt for a good ole beer or wine when drinking. But Somabar hopes to take most of the effort out of the equation by giving you the ability to make hundreds of cocktails at the simple press of a button. The WiFi-enabled appliance carries six special pods that you are meant to fill up with your own combination of liquors, spirits and chasers, as well as a smaller ‘bitters’ pod. Once you’ve told the related application just what’s in these pods, you’ll instantly have access to a list of available drinks.
When you press that button on the app, your SOMABAR will take the ingredients from scratch, infuse bitters (if you are in the mood) and dynamically mix them in precise quantities using positive displacement pumps before pouring out your craft cocktail in less than 5 seconds. The mixing comes from a combination of fluid dynamics, kinetic energy, and turbulence created by static vanes. What that means is fewer moving parts to maintain, as well as fast and perfectly mixed cocktails. Our on-board software and sensors make it easy to make new recipes and manage your inventory (liquid gold).
The pods are dishwasher safe, easily attach and detach from the device, and can be stored in the fridge so your booze is cold.
It’s a $399 pledge for now, with expected delivery in July 2015.
