Well (made) Drink

What do you want? Fruit juice, carbonated drink, flavored water, iced tea, beer, wine, or a mixed drink? MyFountain, the first fully automated drink slinger, will do it for you. The robotic bartender takes orders, mixes cocktails and then cleans up automatically. Underneath the countertop dispenser, you will find a dorm-style refrigerator that houses up to 12 varied types of alcohol and mixers, a water-line link and a carbon-dioxide cartridge for effervesce. The device is 100% customizable depending upon your tastes as you can create any recipe you can think of and make it available at the touch of the LCD screen. The brain of the system sits at the top of the fridge and it’s an Internet-linked Windows XP computer. Users can even limit access via password protection allowing parents to restrict access to alcoholic beverages. At around $2500, expect these robotic bartenders to make a slash when they hit the market next Spring.
