DareDroid

I'm not Mr. Lebowsky, *you're* Mr. Lebowsky, I'm THE DUDE.

So while we’re here toiling in the BarBot Bunker, peep this delightful creation that made an appearance at RoboExotica a couple of years ago, courtesy Anouk Wipprecht, 2010’s RoboExotica Big Important Artist In Residence:

Daredroid is a biomechanic hybrid cocktail robot, which rewards players with a White Russian cocktail upon accepting and completing a game of Truth or Dare. The dress combines pneumatic technology with open-source hardware and human temperament to provide you with a freshly made White Russian cocktail. Your presence triggers the dress to produce milk, and your willingness to play a game of Truth and Dare combined with your natural charm, triggers the decision to give you more than just tepid milk.

For the record, RoboExotica is pretty much the best robot show you will ever go to in your life, ever, and if you ever manage to be in Vienna in the beginning of December we here at BarBot with strongly admonish you if you don’t stop in.
