‘Vocktail’ gives a multi-sensory experience

The 'Vocktail’, developed by the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Keio University, Japan, goes beyond Virtual Reality (VR) for a multi-sensory experience. This cocktail plays on the drinker’s sense of smell, sight and taste, pumping scents straight to the nose, electric pulses to stimulate the taste buds and lights to influence perception.

Robotic cocktail maker goes mobile

From the creators of the world’s first Bionic Bar in 2013, made famous through its installation on Royal Caribbean ships, ‘Nino’ is now being introduced as a mass-market robotic cocktail maker. Customers order through an accompanying phone app, picking a recipe or devising their own concoctions.
