A Robotic Cafe Just Opened in San Francisco

If you're tired of Starbucks baristas misspelling your name and messing up your drink orders, you may want to consider robots as a more reliable and efficient alternative. 

Cafe X Technologies, in conjunction with AKA Coffee, Verve Coffee Roasters and Peet's Coffee, has introduced a coffee-brewing kiosk that aims to "eliminate the variabilities that bog down today’s coffee experience.”


Using Mitsubishi-designed robotic arms and WMF group automatic coffee machines, the device brews, pours, whips, pumps and  performs every other action that goes into your coveted morning latte. 

“I’ve long been a big coffee consumer and there’s never a guaranteed seamless experience,” Cafe X CEO and Founder Henry Hu said in a statement. “In today’s world, you have two options for getting a cup of coffee: You’re either in and out with something subpar; or you’re waiting in a 15-minute line for a great cappuccino. I started Cafe X to eliminate that inherent compromise and give people access to a tasty cup of coffee consistently and conveniently.”

To witness the contraption in action, you'll have to visit the Metreon shopping mall in San Francisco. Customers who are super on-the-go can place their order in advance through the Cafe X app.

The future of technology is looking bright, kids. And lazy. Very, very lazy.
