One of our big projects while in Vienna is building a robot that makes cocktails for ROBOEXOTICA. We are furiously at work coding in python, eating raspberry pies (wait...), and unraveling lengths of LED lights to bring our monster to life! Roboexotica is an annual party in it's eighteenth year! We are documenting our process from idea to building to the party where unsuspecting, thirsty people will interact with our robo-bartender!
Festival for Cocktailrobotics since 1999
Roboexotica 2017 will take place November 23-26, 2017 at REAKTOR Vienna.
Until what seems almost recently, no attempts had been made to publicly discuss the role of Cocktail Robotics as an index for the integration of technological innovations into the human Lebenswelt, or to document the increasing occurrence of radical hedonism in man-machine communication. Roboexotica is an attempt to fill this vacuum. It is the first and, inevitably, the leading festival concerned with cocktail robotics world-wide. A micro mechanical change of paradigm in the age of borderless capital. Alan Turing would doubtless test this out.
