Drink Making Robot Cranks Out White Russians

by Paul Strauss

This officially wins the Chindōgu award of the week. Seems our friends over at Evil Mad Scientist Labs are at it yet again. Hot on the heels of those delicious Asteroids cookies, they’re back – this time with a robot that makes cocktails. Not just any old drinks, but White Russians to be specific.


Created for BarBot 2010 (which we reported on yesterday), EMSL’s descriptively-named Drink Making Unit is a digitally-controlled bartender. After initial false starts using ketchup bottles and servo motors, the EMSL guys decided on a simpler solution for cranking out drinks – breast pumps. Specifically, the Evenflo Comfort Select Performance. There’s nothing comfortable looking about that thing, and I’m not a woman.


With a little modification of the suction pumps, some stainless and flexible plastic tubing, and some carafes, the mechanism was complete.  They then set up a custom-programmed Meggy Jr RGB unit to act as the drink controller.

A couple of flicks of the buttons – a squirt of vodka here, a drip of Kahlua there, and big a pump of cream, the deafening roar of breast milk pumps, and a couple of minutes of your time… One White Russian without humans. Except for the ones who had to design and build this contraption, buy and load the ingredients, and press the buttons.

Now all I need is a cocktail drinking robot and I’ll be all set.
