Whisper Aero is innovating quiet electric propulsion tech that will enable everything from consumer drones to air taxis to blend into the background noise of urban environments.
At my parents' Halloween party, I overheard the frustration as a crowd waited on the single bartender to make one of the few offered cocktails. Inspired by the "Bionic Bar", and itching to put my engineering skills to the test, I set out to make a robotic bartender.
Commercial robotic arms of the desired capability (~48 inch reach, 1kg payload) cost upwards of $25,000 due to expensive manufacturing processes and overcomplicated actuators. Leveraging low-cost 3D printing with plastics strengthened by a basic metal skeleton and coupled with low cost electronics and tuned feedback loops, our robot cost only $3,000.
Mixy allows users to customize their drinks, can serve ~100 drinks/hour, and serves as a cost-effective attraction at private events.
