Scientists have created a cocktail-making robot that can be controlled by smartphones. Party attendees at the Google I/O Conference were invited to send a drink recipe via a smartphone app to a three-armed robot Makr Shakr.

They could then interact with attendees having similar taste to collaboratively design the perfect drink via social media. The idea is to demonstrate how digital technology has the potential to take the power of factory robots away from big companies and into people’s hands, CNN reported.
