Until what seems almost recently, no attempts had been made to publicly discuss the role of Cocktail Robotics as an index for the integration of technological innovations into the human Lebenswelt, or to document the increasing occurrence of radical hedonism in man-machine communication. Roboexotica is an attempt to fill this vacuum. It is the first and, inevitably, the leading festival concerned with cocktail robotics world-wide. A micro mechanical change of paradigm in the age of borderless capital. Alan Turing would doubtless test this out.


As robots have a growing number of different applications, the cases that involve interaction with an end-user are also growing. Progresses in the development of service-robots in the service of households and the elderly and also culinary proofs of concept, during the first decade of a new millenium, have been very promising.

While robots will assemble a car in the blink of an eye with no problem, during the first decade of the 21st century there was still very little effort made on broadly introducing robotics to the environment of a cocktail-bar.

This is where since 1999 has been stepping in to attempt to create a competition of developing technologies and to introduce cocktail-robotics as an index for the integration of technological achievements in everyday life, and as a means of documenting the creation of new interfaces for man-machine-interaction, a priori dedicated to hedonism!

ROBOEXOTICA, and the pool of creative people that annually assembles to celebrate spirited robotics, are now responsible for new ideas on the topic year after year. We are not aiming to replace human bartenders with machines, instead we aspire to help shape a modern Cocktail culture by highlighting new possibilites to enrich the experience of having a Cocktail.

The ROBOEXOTICA tries to establish worldwide contacts with developers of cocktail-robotics and to function as an international platform for anybody interested in the topic.

Annual Cocktail Robot Awards v14.0

At Roboexotica 2012 robots will be awarded for their excellence in these categories:

  1. Serving Cocktails: robots capable of delivering a pre-prepared mixed drink to a patron.
  2. Mixing Cocktails: robots preparing a mixed Cocktail.
  3. Bartending Conversation, Interaction: robot that exhibit interaction/conversation skills befitting a Cocktail Bar situation.
  4. Fire+Smoke / Smoking Culture: robots that exhibit Fire and/or Smoke art fitting for a Cocktail environment. Or be helpful in the ritual of smoking cigars, cigarettes, etc.
  5. Other Achievements in the Sector of Cocktail Culture: Carte blanche – convince us your contraption has anything to do with either Cocktails or Robots!

The fifth category – other achievements in the sector of cocktail culture – may also be applied for with non-robot gadgets or inventions as well as mere concepts or documented ideas …

The best robots in each category will be awarded – and there are numerous special prizes as well!

NEW 2012 category addition:

  • 3D Printed Drinking & Smoking Paraphernalia

Ich bin bei der Jobsuche im Internet auf webtermine.at gestoßen und habe meine Mitarbeit als  ehrenamtliche Redakteurin angeboten. Als Publizistik-Studentin interessieren & faszinieren mich Medien und besonders die Online-Kommunikation. Es ist spannend, die virtuelle Welt mit der „realen“ zu verbinden, neue Menschen kennen zu lernen und nebenbei sein Wissen zu erweitern.
Meine 3 Tags: Menschen, Medien, Social Web
