Barkeeper |versus| KUKA KR6 R900 Agilus

For this year’s Rob|Arch conference on robotic fabrication in architecture, art, and design, the Association for Robots in Architecture teamed up with Absolut and award winning barkeeper Lukas Hochmuth to create a special cocktail for the opening of the conference exhibition.
We captured Lukas’ movements with a 3D-scanner at the Ritz-Carlton bar in Vienna so that we could “replay” them – slightly optimized and adapted – at the Rob|Arch conference in Michigan with a KUKA KR6 R900 industrial robot.
While – unlike Lukas – the robot will not win barkeeping awards any time soon, you can download the robot control data file from robotsinarchitecture.org/agilus-barkeeper and have an expertly shaken cocktail wherever your KUKA may be (use at your own risk).
