In a world where robots and humans struggle together in the fight against boredom... Only one event ends up with the robots dancing "The Human" while the meat puppets (you) end up singing the praises of RoboBartenders.
This March, come hang out with some alternate life-forms at BarBot:Automatic - our annual festival of Cocktail Robotics and robot art! Buy tickets here!
BarBot is a celebration of cocktail culture and man-machine interface. Get a drink from an actual robot. Chat up a snarky electronic bartender. Listen to some graceful tunes being played by robotic music makers. And, after downing your sixth martini, you can finally admit that it's the geeks who shall inherit the earth.
These robots don't clean the carpets. What they will do is much, much better. They make you a drink! Let your roommate do the vacuuming. These bots have got better programming on their mind.
When: Fri/Sat, March 1-2, 2013 - 7pm-12am
Who: 21+ with photo ID
Tickets: Buy them here!
Venue: SOMArts - 934 Brannan Street (@ 9th), San Francisco, CA 94103
