Abstract

Students from Middlesex University’s Product Design and Engineering Department have designed the ultimate drinks dispenser – the ‘Heineken Bot’, an automated robot, which can pour pints right in front of you! The Robot, a beer keg mounted on driveable wheels, has a specially programmed electronic brain which directs it to move along a specific route. By placing your hand above the Bot, a sensor is activated, which stops the device – you then place a glass under the keg tap, the Bot pours out your drink and moves on to its next customer! It could be the perfect solution for those tense moments ahead during this summer’s World Cup – no danger of missing that crucial penalty shoot-out!
