Wherein our Robot Overlords have been captured on video!

John finished editing the video of the Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge! It looks amazing! Here's the full video, and some stills:

It's about 45 minutes long. If you want to skip around, here are the sections:

The winners were:

Thanks for everyone who participated! It was great fun.

There's also some video coverage over at reason.com.

    FYI, the Bartendro link jumps to the wrong spot in the video (28m instead of 20m).

    Thanks for posting this -- it's always nice to know I didn't make a complete ass of myself when being filmed. And thanks for the event! Trophy or not, the Cocktail Engine crew had a great time.

  3. I'm curious how the DNA Lounge decided the winner. I was under the impression when buying $30 worth of drink tokens, that whoever sold the most drinks won. But apparently what we spent money on, the 'crowd vote' so to speak, meant nothing. Because the team that sold the most didn't win. They also didn't come in 2nd or even 3rd place. Why are you charging us to "vote" if our vote means nothing?? I liked the one that won, I liked all of them. They were very cool. But don't try to con customers into thinking we are participating with our money, when it doesn't even matter.

    Thanks for the video. I wish I could've been there, looked really great. And I'm all eager to build a Bartendro for home. Really cool, even though it had no shaker.
