Selfridges, the upmarket departmental store in London, in collaboration with Bacardi, has unveiled a unique bartender. This bartender is a smart tech robot named Toni. Selfridges is claiming it to be the world’s first automated cocktail maker. This ‘bartender’ owes its origin from the Italian smart tech company Makr Shakr.
The robot has two mechanical arms and it can prepare and serve cocktails in seconds. The drinkers can chose their cocktail preferences through a mobile app which enables them to run through a list of pre-made classic cocktail and mocktail recipes. They can also order their own customised cocktails.
Selfridges believes that Toni can liven up the shopping experience for retailers at its flagship store in London’s Oxford Street.
