If there was ever a robot worthy of being called a ‘beerbot’ then the Texterator is just that. Here’s some footage of this little badass in action, pouring beers and burning phone numbers into red solo cups using frickin’ laser beams.
The Texterator was built by Zipwhip, a text messaging company that works for existing landlines. And as I mentioned before, the Texterator was debuted at GeekWire’s 5th Anniversary Bash, where people in attendance were able to get crunked thanks to this handy little brobot.
According to GeekWire, the initial pours from the Texterator ‘weren’t exactly smooth’, but as the night wore on the robot hit his stride and became everyone’s favorite bartender….Now I really, really, really want one for myself. If anyone out there is a roboticist and is planning on getting me a birthday or Christmas present this year then go ahead and mark this down. I don’t want another fucking pair of tube socks, I want a damn robot that can pour beers. Is that too much to ask?
