Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Robots are show up in lots of places these days. And it may not be long before a robot mixes and serves you a drink. RoboLab is creating a robotic bartender called Yanu. The company is based in Estonia….where CEO Alan Adojaan has been in the nightclub and bar business for years. He’s worked with a local university…and estimates the cost will come to about 150 thousand dollars. But he points out Yanu’s speed can actually replace three human bartenders. And he hopes to include a bit of AI personality…
“It’s not that easy, but we have a lot of time ahead and we’re going to keep constantly optimizing and implementing it. And of course, it can learn on the go. That’s the biggest challenge. I definitely say that. And at the same time the most fun.”
Stay tuned. Yanu should arrive, we are told, by the end of the year.
