Whoopee Robot Technology has showcased a robotic arm for making coffee at AppWorks Demo Day#19, a semiannual event to match 18 startup teams with venture capital investors and enterprise partners hosted by AppWorks Accelerator, according to Whoopee co-founder Morris Lu.

The robotic arm, targeted for use in delivering food and beverage, is equipped with an AI-based brain to learn human instructions and perform designated tasks, Lu said. Users without engineering background can simply use cloud computing-based operational software to set the robotic arm to meet their needs, Lu said.

Whoopee has cooperated with the three largest distributors of coffee machines in Taiwan for marketing the robotic arm and plans to use it at unstaffed coffee shops in Bangkok, Thailand, Lu noted.
