Stuart Ferguson's robot bartender iLush had in fact already won last year's Gold medal at Robogames. Actually Roboexotica has been in contact with Stuart in order to get iLush to roboeXotica Dec 2008. But due to unfavorable circumstances they didn't make it and so the first chance yours truly had to lay eyes on the contraption occured at this year's robotic equivalent to the Olympic games - Robogames 2009 ... where, as already reported, it promptly won Gold again.
Watch iLush mix several drinks in the video below:
Basic data: mixes four Martini cocktails, which are configurable in size and dryness. Touchpad user interface. Glass magazine holds up to eight cocktail glasses.
But most importantly - I can attest to that it doesn't just look shiny with it's blinky lights, but it also mixes pretty decent drinks!
