Meet Yanu, The Robot Bartender Coming To An Airport Near You

How do you like your martini? Shaken, stirred or made by an AI-powered robotic arm? Well, we hope you’re into the latter, because a robot bartender could very soon be coming to an airport near you.

Introducing Yanu – the fully autonomous robotic bar unit.

Yanu is said to be the future of bartending. “Our robot called Yanu has soul, has a personality that is run by artificial intelligence,” says Alan Asojjaan, CEO of Robolab, the company that built the machine. “The robot communicates with you, gives suggestions, and even cracks jokes.”

But make no mistakes, gimmicks aside Yanu is a productivity beast – enough to scare the pants off any bartender. The machine has the capacity to make between 100 and 150 drinks per hour, and up to 2000 drinks or cocktails in a single load.

While the robot bar is still in development, it has already been hired by several airports throughout Europe.

Keep your eyes peeled.
