The turtlebots, which resembled coolers on wheels, traveled back and forth from the bar to rooms where people were sitting, and they'd take drink orders from the human participants. When someone requested a beer, a turtlebot traveled to a third machine, the large robot "bartender," which supplied the beverage. Then the turtlebot delivered the beer to the person.
