Julius Steinhauser tends the Plasmastaub.

You arm wrestle the metal hand in front of him, and assuming you are successful a glass drops down, the whiskey bottle tips up to fill it, and a rubber band loaded arm sends the drink shooting down the bar along with a musical 'Yee Ha'

They got an award for Cocktail Serving. It was an awesome experience!

I'd like to figure out a way to get them to Burning Man. Wouldn't it be awesome to put this bar at the front of the Burning Man Earth camp?

After the robot exterminations of the year 3078, PLASMASTAUB is one of the last remaining jackBOTS®. A group of resistance fighters managed to retrieve him and some of his fellows from neuralization by sending them on an adventurous journey through time. The robots were supposed to be sent into the future where a harmonic coexistence between man and machine would be possible ... but something went terribly wrong. Due to a loose lead in the energy supply module of the time machine, the target date was reset to January 1st 1970.

In the year 2009 a group of FH-students decided to submit a wild-west-bar-robot to ROBOEXOTICA. Looking for the required materials they found the (albeit severely damaged) jackBOT® in the very back of one of their grandfathers' metal dumps. Immediately becoming fond of the robot, the project team decided to repair PLASMASTAUB. By changing a few parameters they turned him into a rude, arm wrestling, whiskey slinging wild-west-barBOT.
