A Las Vegas bar is experimenting with pub robotics, with Tipsy Robot available to mix drinks ordered using self-service kiosks.
imageHolders and Robotic Innovations have set up 30 Slimline tablet kiosks, customised to mount on a 45-degree pillar in portrait on a specialist table in a Las Vegas bar.
The tablet kiosks enclose a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, alongside a contactless reader within the enclosure, which required a specialist hub by Lava Computers.
A Magtek Dynamag card swipe reader was externally mounted to accept payment and secured with a custom side bracket.
The Tipsy Robot combines robotic technology with traditional service. Customers are offered the choice of creating a drink using the tablet kiosks and having the beverage created by a robot, or visiting a traditional bar with a human barman.
Christian Bosence, account manager at imageHolders, says: “Robotic Innovations provided a really exciting project for imageHolders and we were excited to work together combining robotics and tablet technology.
“The Slimline tablet kiosks were an ideal solution for Tipsy Robot, integrating contactless technology with swipe readers to create a point of sale and ordering kiosk for customers.
“We look forward to seeing where the next Tipsy Robot bar launches.”
The Tipsy Robot bar is located within the “50-Yard Line” of the Las Vegas Strip, surrounding Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, which opened to the public on 30th June 2017.
Designed to fit flush to any wall or glass surface, the Slimline Plus can integrate a contactless card reader, biometric fingerprint reader or swipe card reader within the secure holder to create a multi-device solution.
