It’s hard enough to keep your cool on a scorching day. Pack your Heineken B.O.T. with ice and get ready to relax because it keeps your beverages freezing cold and available to drink at your leisure. According to the Heineken website, the cooler is 3 cubic feet, can store approximately 12 cans of beer, and is compatible with Heineken 0.0 bottles. This means all you need to do is stock your B.O.T. to keep the drinks flowing. Whenever you’re ready to crack open another can (or bottle) of that delicious beverage, this robotic companion stands by to deliver it.

Autonomously follows and delivers

Whether you’re looking to relax by the pool or flip burgers at the grill, Heineken B.O.T. is capable of intelligently following along. As you move from spot to spot, you can initiate the robotic cooler’s follow mode with a simple voice command. Just say, “Hey Heineken bot, let’s roll!” and it will be at your side in a flash.

B.O.T. navigates backyards with ease and can maneuver around obstacles and objects alike. It can spin in circles and even navigate with an open lid! While the website doesn’t specifically detail every aspect of its design, the official commercial for the robot appears to show it capable of traversing grass and avoiding the edges of pools. Of course, should a situation arise that you need to be hands-on, B.O.T. has a secondary option for remote control.
