Meet Your New Best Friend, Adam!
I mentioned enjoying expensive cocktails at home in a previous article by becoming the bartender. This involved a device you stocked with liquor, pushed a few buttons, and made the perfect cocktail.
What if you could take this further and have your bartender on-call? Richtech Robotics wants you to realize this possibility with one of their newest innovations named Adam. Adam has an Intel artificial intelligence depth sensor camera and a speaker to interact with your guests or customers. Make a note of the blue led horizontal strip in the eye area. As Adam converses with the audience, this led set-up will sync in unison with audio playback.
It has two automatic robotic modules (ARM) robots also made by Richtech. These modules can be programmed to learn and perform repeatable tasks. While these ARM units can be purchased separately to conduct individual programmed tasks, Richtech attached two of these “ARMS” to ADAM. Now you have a fully functional bartender or barista.
Introduced at the Vegas CES show earlier this year, ADAM is geared for commercial settings and thoroughly designed to run 24/7. What better place to introduce such a unit than in Las Vegas, Nevada, a place that never seems to sleep! Expect to see more of Adam and the like as technology evolves. The future is now!
