Your Next Hotel Room Could Have A Drink-Mixing Robot

Hotels are meant for luxury, allowing patrons to put their feet up and enjoy some well deserved rest and relaxation. Instead heading down to the bar to get a drink at the end of the day, guests might soon be able to have one made in the comfort of their room.

The Somabar is robotic device that can make nearly any cocktail that a guest could desire. It pulls ingredients selected from the touchscreen and begin to assemble the drink desired without any additional input, though you do have to pre-load it with your preferred alcohol. The product first appeared as a Kickstarter in 2014 and earned over $300,000, well over its original goal of $50,000. The idea is to have Somabar replace the hotel mini-fridge, as well as helping restaurants fulfill drink orders during busy hours.
