2 BarBots - 1 Year November 01 2013, 0 Comments

BarBot was held last weekend for the second time this year! The event has been gaining enough popularity to warrant a bi-yearly occurrence. Entrants have more than doubled since we started in 2010! The venue at the Oddfellow's Hall in SF on 7th and Market was quite nice. It felt larger than previous venues and each bot had plenty of space between it and its neighbors. The lighting was even colorful, creating a fantastic atmosphere for sampling all the different robot made cocktails. While the timing was a little strange, coinciding with an otherwise busy Halloween weekend, it made sense once we learned that it was part of science week. It was really great to see some of our delivered Kickstarter dispensers being put to use in other peoples' bots, solving real peoples' problems. Below is a small sampling of our pictures, but of course we didn't get it all. Honorable mentions go to un-pictured bots Simon Says Bot!, PistonBot, Elixirator, Irish Coffee Bot, and whomever else I missed. Find the rest of our set on Flickr.

This coming Sunday we'll be at a more local event called The Chemistry of Cocktails, where Bartendro will be serving it's usual array of several dozen cocktails. After that we'll be gearing up to go to the granddaddy of all cocktail robot festivals....Roboexotica in Vienna, December 5-8th! We've heard so many great things, and are very excited to go and experience it for ourselves.
