Using nothing else but cranks and bottles, Barwin is accurate enough to serve exactly the same cocktail over and over again. But instead of doing so, Barwin employs an evolutionary algorithm to create a unique mix for each customer. This mechanism simulates a population of cocktails that evolves over time, making each generation meet the common taste more efficiently than the former. To help the population evolve, the client is asked to evaluate each drink. YOU decide if your cocktail can pass its properties to the upcoming generation, or if it is erased from the gene pool. When evolution succeeds, the fittest cocktails will survive and some barkeepers may lose their jobs.

Slim tries a game at roboexotica

In the End of November 2012 during the European Robotics Week the first edition of Cafe Neu Romance was held in Europe's robot culture capital - Prague.


The International Robot Performance festival which was organized by Vive Les Robots! and co-organized by Galerie NTK had prepared a strong program.


Austrian Magnus Wurzer hold an inspiring presentation of his brainchild "Roboexotica" - a robotics cocktail art and DIY festival held one time each year in Vienna since 1999. Roboexotica was a big inspiration for the American Barbot festival.

Austrian Zwax made a good impression on everyone at Cafe Neu Romance 2014. Not only because his pancake robot created pancakes to the visitors, but also because of his kind personality.


He is a maker and he likes to tinke with electronics and mechanics. Most of his projects he creates at Metalab, which is the Worlds premiere hackerspace in Vienna, where he is based in his everyday life.


He works as a software developer for A1Telekom, Fresnex GmbH and meo Smart Home Energy GmbH.


He had the idea for the Amalettomat when he visited the Austrian cocktail robotics festival Roboexotica for some years ago. After some drinks he became hungry and because he had a great desire for a food processing robot! he decided to build one. His first idea in 2011 was to build a pizza robot but that seemed to be too difficult. In the 2014 edition of the Amalettomat it has only gone through some minor change.


The Amalettomat is built of many parts from scrap, e.g. 2 drill motors, or a stepper motor from a printer. The frame is made of steel and aluminium profiles, most of them were lying around in our workshop, and the outer case is made of acryl.


The heart of the electronics is an Atmega controller programmed with Arduino software. Besides that there are only a stepper driver and some relays.

Austrians take this sort of thing very seriously, it seems.
