Inebriator is a Robotic Bartender that Mixes Drinks on Command

Inebriator

Some robots were meant to scare people while others were created to provide people with companionship (but really, when will people learn that live pets just can’t be replaced with robotic ones?) And then there’s the awesome and amazing robot that has been programmed to mix drinks and cocktails on command to serve thirsty crowds at the party.

It’s called the Inebriator and it’s a cocktail-mixing machine that uses an Arduino microcontroller to do the deed. It’s pre-programmed with 15 drink recipes so you and your guests are bound to find something you’d like on the menu. It’s not for sale though, so if you want it, you’re going to have to build your own.

Check out a clip of the Inebriator in action after the jump.

Dubbed as ‘Never Mind the Anabolics’, the ingredients list for this limited-edition India pale ale includes ‘creatine, guarana, lycii berries, kola nut, Gingko, matcha tea, maca powder and steroids.’ The brew was specially formulated to ‘unmask the corporate beast of the world’s biggest sporting event and highlight the shallow nature of sponsorship.’

An inside source explains that only the first batch of beer actually contained steroids. The bottles that will be made available to the public won’t contain steroids, but they’ll still be pumped with other substances that Olympics athletes are banned from consuming.

Hit the jump to check out a video promo for this controversial brew.
