Programmer and engineer Yu Jiang Tham has built a robot that mixes drinks.

It’s name? The Bar Mixvah.

Taking up to five alcoholic ingredients, the Bar Mixvah can mix cocktails of varied levels of strength. All automatically. It may sound like an Isaac Asimov novel to some, but the Bar Mixvah’s designer has set out to make his robot a big splash.

On Yu Jiang Tham’s website, a plethora of information can be found. The site contains a lot of technical jargon and will probably be confusing to most uneducated in programming and engineering, but it remains no less fascinating. Complete with a step-by-step process, Yu describes exactly how the Bar Mixvah is produced.

He even tries to teach viewers to construct their own Bar Mixvah with an instructional video.

According to Yu, the robot costs approximately $180 to make, with all of the parts being 3D printed. The total time to print the pieces is around 18 hours. But when finished the Bar Mixvah is the perfect toy for the super hip, ultra-tech drinker.

It’ll certainly impress all your friends at your next cocktail party.
