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 below and have an expertly shaken cocktail wherever your KUKA may be (use at your own risk).
