dezeen brings to attention the robotic cocktail maker Nino, an updated version of Makr Shakr, capable of serving any drink in seconds. Nino is the brain-child of Italian architect Carlo Ratti.

"Nino explores the new dynamics of social creation and consumption — 'design, make and enjoy' — allowing users to design their own cocktail creations, while digitally controlled machines transform their ideas into reality," said Ratti, who is a founder of Makr Shakr as well as the head of his own practice, Carlo Ratti Associati and a professor at MIT.

Although Nino might lack the banter of the best human bartenders, Makr Shakr describes the robot as able to "precisely prepare and elegantly serve any drink in seconds".
