Makr Shakr Launches Smaller Bartender Robot
The Toni Compatto has just one arm, and does both booze and coffee drinks
Makr Shakr unveiled yesterday the Toni Compatto, its latest — and smallest — bartending robot.
The Compatto (which means “compact” in Italian)(which you probably surmised on your own), features just one articulating arm, and can make both boozey and coffee drinks.
The Compatto can make 50 drinks per hour, compared to the 80 drinks per hour the bigger, dual-armed Toni can make.
Makr Shakr’s site also lists the “Toni Veloce,” a dual-armed robot built for speed (240 drinks per hour), another Makr Shakr ‘bot we hadn’t seen before.

Makr Shakr is one of if not the original robot bartender companies, having been in the boozey ‘bot business since 2014. It’s got robots installed in Las Vegas, Milan, Amsterdam and Prague, and its bots have been at sea, working with many a cruise line over the years.
Yesterday, Makr Shakr mixed things up by unveling the new Toni Compatto via Linkedin post. With its smaller footprint and added coffee drink functionality, the new Compatto could help Makr Shakr breakr into more hospitality markets.
