Thirsty Thoughts

The one and only mind-controlled drinks pourer

Thirsty Thoughts’ first outing into mind controlled drinks pouring came in 2016 and the introduction of Homer (of the Simpson’s variety, not the Greek philosopher!). Tracking EEG brain waves by measuring tiny muscular movements in the participant’s forehead, Homer is the most sophisticated drinks pourer you may ever see.

Homer has poured hundreds of drinks for revellers at events run by Twitter, Marriott, KPMG and many more.

The challenge

The challenge was simple…. Make a customisable mobile bar where drinks can be poured purely with the power of people’s minds.

The outcome

To deliver the best experience possible, Thirsty Thoughts is a bespoke system from the ground up. At the heart, is a custom ultra-mobile bar and cellar, designed to be easily constructed and light enough to travel the world on commercial flights. On top, are bespoke robotic taps controlling the angle of pint glass or Prosecco flute, and the  flow of your beverage of choice! And of course, the principle interaction, the mind-control EEG headset that controls everything via the custom app – there you have it, the mind-controlled drinks pourer!

“We poured beer for ourselves using mind control! 🍻 🙌 😄 😱”
