Do you have a drink-serving robotic contraption whose powers of automated intoxication must be shared with the world? Have you created a pulsing, apocalyptic juggernaut of booze and steel?
Can it go the distance? Do you think your cocktail robot has a chance at winning the title of Best Robot Bartender?
We at DNA Lounge cordially invite you to bring your cocktail robot to our fine establishment for a night of Robot Happy Hour -- and to enter the fourth annual Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge.
We supply the booze and you bring a robot bartender with whom you'll wow, delight, and intoxicate attendees -- and our panel of celebrity judges.
• First place: $1,000 cash!
• Second place: $700 cash!
• Third place: $300 cash!
Spectators and Victims:
$12 advance, $16 day of show. Admission includes two robot drink chips to spend at any cocktail robot. Additional drink chips will be available for $6 each. Human attendees must be 21 or older.
Robots and Builders:
The contest entry fee is $45 per robot. This also includes entry to the event for your build team.
Judging will be based on:
• Style and Grace:
How clever, how dapper is that robot of yours?
• Efficiency of Intoxication:
Are the drinks it makes good?
The opposite of halfassery. Does the infernal device actually work, or do you have to stand there tweaking it constantly?
• This Will End Badly:
Extra consideration will be given for terrible ideas and Mad Science.
