Future of Foods
Cafe X is a robotic coffee bar that breaks new ground in automated food service. Designed for simple installation in a wide range of environments from high end office buildings to airports and hotels, each Cafe X is a self-contained food retailer serving high-quality espresso drinks made with coffee from local roasters.
The glass-enclosed kiosk is organized around a lively and precise robot barista preparing and serving a wide assortment of top-notch coffee bar standards. Customers can place orders via the unit’s selection and payment interface or they can jump the line using the Cafe X mobile app. A large information display located above the coffee-making action is there to let customers know when their order will be ready.
Ammunition provided industrial design, UX design and product development support to Cafe X with the goal of creating a welcoming, useful, easily maintained, and modern amenity for environments that may not be entirely suited for traditional retail.
