Schrödinger’s Martini: Geiger Counter as mixologist

Photo: Lenore Edman

Josh Meyer and Jonathan Foote created this scintillating cocktail robot for Barbot 2013. They also exhibited it at the DNA Lounge Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge last July.

A MightyOhm Geiger Counter samples radioactive decay from a martini glass that contains a small amount of uranium. If the number of clicks in a set period is even, the robot dispenses vermouth into the glass. If the count is odd, it dispenses gin, therefore creating a wet or dry martini based on the random process of radioactive decay.
