Turn your Facebook likes into a cocktail with The Social Shot

Ever dreamt of having your own bespoke cocktail? Something created for you and only you?

Well, a new bartending robot called The Social Shot can now make a cocktail based on your personality.

How? By using your Facebook data. Obvs.

This bartending robot interprets your Facebook likes through an algorithm and reduces your personality to five fundamental traits (called the Big Five): openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism.

Each trait is paired with one ingredient for the drink and the percentage level of each personality trait controls the respective ingredients quantity in the overall mix.


For instance a Facebook user whose profile suggests a smaller amount of conscientiousness will receive a shot with less vodka.

Don’t expect a large cocktail though, the robot’s name speaks for itself, you’ll end up with a nice rainbow looking shot.


Not convinced? Here’s the video, and more details about the robot.
