Following a stupendously popular pop-up in the basement of K11 Art Mall in June 2018, the precision automated and robot-manned bar/cafe has secured a ground-floor location in Raffles City. Although it's not entirely Terminator-run, the venue's unique selling point is the robot-arm that can be programmed to mix/brew the perfect cocktail/cup of coffee according to preferences set by the customer in an app/WeChat miniprogram. It's all very high-tech and a little gimmicky, more for the experience than the product. The menu currently has 50+ drink items in the 80rmb range for cocktails, 50rmb for coffees, with the option to invent your own drink from scratch. The food menu is all human, though.
