Meet Monsieur the amazing $2,699 robot bartender that can learn your drinking habits and mix an astonishing 300 different cocktails. The new device, which is similar to a Nespresso machine, is designed to be used at home and can even synch with smart phones. The robot has an advanced artificial intelligent drive and can detect when you come home late and might want a double. It also picks up when you're with someone else - noticing more than one mobile device on the Wi-Fi network - so it can suggest if you want two drinks instead of one. It also monitors how much you're drinking and can estimate your blood alcohol level. It can even help you get a cab.
The system can also be programmed to send alerts when ingredients are low and purchase new ingredients via a liquor delivery service. There are two models one for $1,499 with a four-liquid container capacity, each holding 30 ounces, or an eight-container version for $2,699. The device has recently been added to crowdfunding site Kickstarter. The first backers will receive a shipment as early as December 2013 and other pledges have a ship date of spring 2014.
Barry Givens, CEO and co-founder, of Monsieur, said: "The goal of Monsieur is to redefine the social drinking experience by using smart technology to create a personal bartender, assistant and mixologist for everyone - providing an unmatched cocktail experience, anywhere you might be."
