Industrial design concept from sketches to working protoype for robot bar Yanu in collaboration with robotics and mechatronic engineers, robotical software specialists, multimedia light&sound experts, app software developers etc..
Yanu is a high-tech barman. A fully automatic robotic waiter led by artificial intelligence, serving clients with drinks both at the metropolitan airports and the dimly lit nightclub floors. While his robotic hand mixes the components of the cocktails or pours the customer a shot of cognac, his moves are precise and calculated. Yanu has a personal stance digitally refined charisma. He can be an old school gentleman pouring a Martini for James Bond or a prankster on the deck of a spaceship from the future. If someone fancies a quick game, Yanu can display a chessboard or sudoku on his bar counter. The images of available drinks are shown on the glass dock screens, or once-in-a-while the winking face of Yanu is displayed, saying something approving to the customer who takes a bit longer to make their decision.
