Clement Gault and Koi Koi Design shook, stirred, and served up the ‘Data Cocktail’–Arduino (open-source electronics platform)-powered machine that makes drinkers cocktails based off Twitter updates.

I mean, granted, you’re not going to kick the bucket (probably), but the idea that a robotender’s about to snag the last five tweets that relate to ingredients off an endless news feed, is unnerving, for sure.

You’ve gotta’ respect the ingenuity of this creation though.
