Dobot Magician Serves up Coffee

The Yummy Future Robot Café can be found on the University of Illinois campus. It is a café that opened in Spring 2019. Co-founded by Guangzhe Cui, the café uses a robotic machine to serve up about 100-200 cups of coffee per day. The robotic arm is encased in a white cube with a small opening for the coffee cups to be served to customers. Guangzhe Cui, a grad student in Engineering, is hoping that in the long-term they can add mobile pre-orders, a delivery system, dietary adjustments, and lifelike customer service.
