MixoBot: Malaysia's first robot mixologist shakes up a cocktail storm at Petaling Jaya's LAVO
April 19, 2021
It's fun to watch MixoBot make a cocktail starting with an empty glass.
MixoBot isn't a person but it isn't without personality. Its sleek white arms dance and weave across the many bottles suspended from the top, taking only what's needed to shake it like a rock star. It’s a show that's visible throughout LAVO, injecting a unique dynamic to the scene.
MixoBot's movements might seem like an attractive novelty, but this isn't purely a gimmick - this state-of-the-art innovation is fully capable and consistent in determining the accurate proportions for a perfectly crafted cocktail.
Focus Dynamics, which operates LAVO and has introduced the MixoBot in Malaysia, points out that without room for human error, bar owners face fewer risks and losses from drinks returned to the bar by dissatisfied customers. If the customer loves the drink once, they'll always love it.
The final test is in the tasting. We're happy to report that MixoBot's creations at LAVO taste well-balanced, exactly what you'd expect from a respected bartender.
Bar owners and customers will appreciate the convenience offered by MixoBot.
It's easy to programme the MixoBot to create a wide variety of customised cocktails, including the Lychionic (RM35; gin with lemon juice, lychee and Schweppes tonic water), Irishman (RM38; whiskey with lemon juice, soda water and ginger) and Strawberry Margarita (RM36; tequila with triple sec, lime juice and Monin strawberry fruit mix).
The cocktails are priced reasonably, without any MixoBot surcharge.
To see the MixoBot and its flexible arms in action, head to LAVO. You can walk in or book a table through the GemSpot mobile app.
