My expectations were tempered for the Barsys 360 robot cocktail machine, but the Madras I sipped was excellent. The Barsys 360 has six receptacles to pour booze, juice and other mixers. An app lets you know which cocktails you can make with the ingredients, and a special cup with paddles mixes up the drink for you.

This thing seemed to work well, and it looks pretty cool. We might need to haul one in for CNET’s next office happy hour.
