BOTLER SER­VICE

While the self-driv­ing car de­bate re­mains un­re­solved, Las Ve­gans ap­pear ready to leave another of life’s most im­por­tant mat­ters in the “hands” of ma­chines. Tipsy Ro­bot (thetip­sy­robot.com), the long-awaited cock­tail bar staffed by two would-be assem­bly line ro­botic arms, is now open at Planet Hol­ly­wood’s Mir­a­cle Mile Shops. In­stead of wav­ing down your bar­tender for a drink, you file your or­der in an app and watch it pour from ceil­ing-mounted bot­tles into cock­tail shak­ers. The (pre­sum­ably nonunion) ro­bots are ex­pected to make your drink within 60 to 90 sec­onds. If you’re un­sure a ro­bot can mix your cock­tail the way you like it, take so­lace know­ing the hu­man brain be­hind Tipsy Ro­bot’s recipes is South­ern Glazer’s master mixol­o­gist and Bar­tender Hall of Fame award win­ner Francesco Lafran­coni. Cheers to that.

The dy­namic ro­botic duo serves up the con­coc­tion of your dreams with the click of an app.
