The Marty the Martini robot was initially designed as a simple balancing cart that can serve drinks at a party or in a bar. However, as people began to react to his presence, the engineers decided to anthropomorphize this balancing robot. Soon after, they added a beacon following system similar to the “Follow-Me” robot. This system enables the robot to be able to follow a server around a bar or restaurant setting. It could also be used to as a simple static cart for people to set their drinks on while socializing. With these changes, he became the center of attention and conversation.
In the spirit of constructing useful, service robots that border on novelty, Marty the Martini Robot was constructed with the idea that robots can take everyday mundane tasks and make them fun. This robot can be constructed from low cost materials, and in high volume, can be sold quite cheaply, as a novelty item.
