If words were ingredients, what would your sentences taste like? Should someone pick a few words from all that you post on your social media—anger, sadness, hope, positivity, inspirations, gossip and make a cocktail out of it, how would it taste? We’re not being philosophical at all. You can actually taste your sentences, especially the ones that you post on Twitter.
Well, you won’t have to wait for long. Clément Gault and Koi Koi Design have come up with a “Data Cocktail,” a machine that converts your keywords from five recent tweets and interprets them into cocktails. Time taken to concoct your drink depends on the configuration of the device. Roughly speaking, it takes about a minute to make your personalized drink. You can even get the recipe printed from the machine if you like your drink.
The Data Cocktail website explains that the machine will thank all those who have knowingly or unknowingly helped in creating the drink once it is made. The website also elucidates that currently, one can choose up to six different ingredients for their cocktail. These will be corresponding to six different Twitter requests. Going forward, one could choose more.
This machine is powered by Arduino hardware and software. It uses words, hashtags and even mentions tweeted to @datacocktail to create the drink, reveals Tech Radar. However, the only word it cannot pick yet is “Twitter.”
Data Cocktail has evolved from Soif de Parti (a project resulting from a workshop organized in February 2014 at the Laboratoire Arts et Technologie of the Stereolux), explains the Data Cocktail website. The theme was about the tangible representation of data through senses other than sight.
However you might not be able to get your hands on this amazing automated bartender soon. Tech Times informs that the creators hope that one day you can see a robotic bartender creating drinks based on sets of data.
