Monsieur Creates World's First Personal Robotic Bartender to Take With You Everywhere
Artificially Intelligent Robotic Bartender and Smart App Reinvent the Social Drinking Experience at the Touch of a Button
ATLANTA, GA (October 1, 2013) – Monsieur, the company that has developed the world's first artificially intelligent robotic bartender, today announced the launch of a new in-home product – Monsieur for Home, which expertly crafts everyone's favorite cocktails and spirits, made to their exact specifications. Monsieur incorporates sleek hardware and a companion smart application for iOS and Android devices, making drinks that are precisely tailored to meet the most discerning tastes, all at the touch of a button.
"Enjoying cocktails and spirits is a fundamental component of social life for many Americans, but the overall social drinking experience has not been innovated in centuries," said Barry Givens, CEO and co-founder, Monsieur. "The goal of Monsieur is to redefine the social drinking experience by using smart technology to create a personal bartender, assistant and mixologist for everyone – providing an unmatched cocktail experience, anywhere you might be. We've also built in features to encourage responsible drinking by monitoring consumption, estimating blood alcohol levels and even helping users order a cab."The Monsieur mobile app puts a personal bartender right in the palm of your hand no matter where you are. By seamlessly integrating with home automation systems such as SmartThings via WiFi, Zigbee, Z-Wave or Bluetooth, Monsieur harnesses intelligence to become your very own personal butler. For example, if a person's favorite sports team wins the big game, Monsieur can offer a celebratory drink. Watching your favorite TV show? Monsieur can recommend the perfect cocktail for that exact moment. It can even detect when you have a date over and offer to make him or her a cocktail too.
Discover New Cocktails From Around the Globe
While the average person is familiar only with a handful of drinks and can make only half that number, Monsieur possesses a vast knowledge of cocktails and can introduce people to thousands of new drinks from around the globe, with no wait or clean-up involved. Monsieur will even crowd source new cocktail recipes from users, and allow them to share these new discoveries with friends. By utilizing Monsieur's themed packages featuring custom cocktail lists, people can transform their next home party into any environment such as a trendy nightclub in London or Tiki Bar in Hawaii. Monsieur will help people be able to get out of lines and from behind the bar so they can enjoy their social drinking experience to the fullest in a responsible way.
