Technology is amazing, this automatic cocktail maker cranks out an amazing 200 drinks per hour. The company says that the auto bartender will increase quality and consistency, reduce costs and loss and increase over all efficiency.
Of course, this may all be true, but will it innovate? While I am sure that this is great for vanilla chain restaurant, hotel and airport bars, it will never replace the neighborhood barkeep. Nor will it create amazing, innovative cocktails that the worlds best mixologists have been developing for decades.
