This morning Sergey Teterin arrived in Vienna and he has paid me a first visit - introducing his surprise-entry for ROBOEXOTICA, the Alcotron, or Russian Bar Roulette.
It caters to a vice that is somewhat under-represented at ROBOEXOTICA: gambling.
You choose one of three colors you "bet" on and place your glass on the according color on the board. Then you start the Alcotron by pressing the red button - and wait which color turns up.
If it's the color you picked you got lucky and can get your drink free or half priced, depending on which betting mode you pick.
Sergey's wife, designer Anna Zueva is responsible for the convincing retro-soviet look and feel of the device.
