Super Bartender

Aiding a bartender with an extra robotic arm to prepare cocktails and deliver drinks

V4.9.94, 2022

Matthew Robertson (2019-2020), Ozdemir Can Kara (2020), Mustafa Mete (2020-2022)

Demo Duration: 


We present the design and human-in-the-loop control of a soft, lightweight, compact, and reconfigurable extra robotic limb.

To create such a design and platform is a challenge for producing so many degrees of freedom in a compact packaging that collapses completely flat while when in use, extends to enlarge the workspace.

In the scene, you will see an extra robotic limb that extends the capabilities of bartenders or servers by additional grasping and manipulation abilities with the new collapsible robotic arm.

The presented extra robotic limbs will enhance the human capabilities in daily scenarios including manual workplace, sports and art. 

Moreover, the proposed limb design and control strategy can be further integrated into assistive technologies by attaching to a wheelchair or a wall in a room.
