A Barista ‘Robot’ That Will Paint Your Portrait On Your Latte

NYC-based design studio Hypersonic—together with Rock Paper Robot, Jamie Zigelbaum, and Kyle McDonald—created a robot that will paint a portrait of your face on your latte.

Called ‘Barista Bot’, it was introduced as a marketing stunt for General Electric during this year’s SXSW.

“We wanted to bring something light-hearted and unexpected to the SXSW experience. We tried to imagine how we could take a common experience and make it interactive and fun,” said Hypersonic.

“The result is a robot that uses real time data analysis to take a picture a person ordering coffee, analyze their facial characteristics, and draw their face on the cup of coffee.”
