Coffee Robot, As A Beverage Form Of Food Service
A robot is a machine --especially one programmable by a computer-- capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. Robots can be guided by an external control device or the control may be embedded within. Robots may be constructed to take on human form but most robots are machines designed to perform a task with no regard to how they look. [from wikipedia]

A tent was set up just above E-Trade Plaza on Sansome Street at Bush Street. The writing on the tent could be interpreted as: "Cafe X, Robotic Coffee Bar."

A man stood in front of the Robotic Coffee Bar and waited for his coffee to be ready. A robotic arm behind the glass transferred the prepared coffee from the dispenser to the serving slot.

A man behind the curtain was the manual part of robotic service. He kept the robot stocked with materials such as cups, and sold baked goods to the public. The man behind the curtain also allowed folks to spin a wheel to win a piece of fresh fruit. Kiosks provided self-service access for coffee orders.
