Will your wine and beer be served by robot moving forward?
A BAR owner in Sevilla has teamed up with a Spanish tech company to help serve thirsty locals in the post-COVID-19 era.
Alberto Martinez, 53, owner of La Gitana Loca (The Crazy Gypsy), has installed a robotic arm which allows punters to order their own beer and which can pour up to 600 cañas per hour.
The robot arrived just in time for the re-opening of bars and restaurants across Sevilla on Monday as the province entered Phase 1 of the coronavirus de-escalation plan.

Created by tech outfit Macco Robotics, the robotic arm takes payments by card, eliminating human contact and allowing Martinez to reopen with greater ease after remaining closed for over two months due to the country’s state of alarm.
“We began brainstorming the idea of using an automatic server before the pandemic arrived,” explained Martinez.
“In summer months we regularly have long lines of young people waiting for drinks and our bar staff are often overwhelmed.
“Then COVID-19 spread and everything stopped, but we decided to continue with the idea.”
