It’s like having your own live-in bartender and you don’t even have to tip.

The makers of Barobot, an open-source cocktail mixing robot, recently debuted their machine on Kickstarter, where they hope to raise £91,000 (about $153,300) to help bring it to the market.

The hackable machine can hold a dozen bottles of liquor and features more than 1,000 recipes that can be selected from Barobot’s “brain” on a 7-inch Android tablet.

For the even lazier, drinks can be ordered via a smartphone app, sending the order to Barobot without having to leave the comfort of the couch.

Konrad Klepacki, the co-founder of Barobot, told ABC News in an email from Poland that the machine can mix “perfect drinks.”

“You don’t need to be a professional bartender equipped with professional measuring stuff and a head full of drink recipes,” he said.

As an added party-boosting bonus, the machine lights up with 100 individually controlled LEDs that can be set to synchronized music.

However, unlike a real bartender, it doesn’t tell jokes.
