Selfridges in association with Asahi beer has unveiled the world’s first personalized robotic barman that has a potential to serve you with a drink within two-minutes of taking the order, hence saving your 13- minutes. Called ‘Mr Asahi,’ it is developed using Robotics and Animatronics, and essentially is expert in serving ice-cold beer as half pints within de-cap bottles of beer. Mr Asahi’s simulation technology is accessible upon a condensed air feature that is monitored and synchronized through its numerous valves and electrical switching mechanisms connected to a PC.
They say 200 man hours were invested by a pool of eight-engineer to create such a product with robotic bar keeping skills. Weighing a quarter of a ton, it always offers a smiling face and responds patiently to the customers’ needs.
