4. COFFEE MAKING MANGA ROBOT
Are you tired? Do you need a coffee? Don’t worry, the Manga coffee robot will make a nice coffee for you. The Manga robot is a mean looking humanoid mini robot that runs on 20 digital KRS servos along with a motor. Here is how it works. It takes the coffee filter and keeps the filter over the coffee cup. It then takes the coffee beans and powders it. The powdered beans falls in a small container and the Manga robot takes the container and pours the coffee powder into the filter. The Manga robot then takes hot water and pours it over the coffee powder in the filter. Your coffee is ready.
