MakrShakr: what could you make with the power of three robots in your pocket?

A robotic bar offering the crowd a taste of third industrial revolution!

Makr Shakr is a robotic bar, able to prepare approximately one googol drink combinations based on crowd input. People will be able to design their own drinks learning from the recipes of others, and leaving tips for the next designer, through their handheld devices. The digital design system can also monitor the individual’s alcohol consumption, promoting responsible drinking. Makr Shakr aims to show the “Third Industrial Revolution” paradigm through the simple process design-make-enjoy, and in just the time needed to prepare a new cocktail.

The project will preview during Milan Design Week (April 9-14th) before being unveiled in its final configuration at Google I/O in San Francisco on May 15th, 2013.

Bot&Dolly – Chevy Sonic Street Art Car

Bot & Dolly was hired by Slim Productions and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners to help engineer the first ever robotic art car as part of Chevy’s “Lets do this” campaign.

The Bot & Dolly team pimped out a Chevy Sonic with a paint canon, sprayer and 1500lb robot with custom controls. Graffiti artist Jeff Soto was able to create a another urban masterpiece by blending his own distinct style with the precision of the robot. The results were extraordinary and highlight B&D’s extensive engineering and fabrication capabilities for creative work.
