Ella is a fully autonomous robot barista at Crown Coffee in Singapore. Keith Tan, Crown Coffee’s CEO and founder, brainstormed the six-axis robot that runs on a constellation of Intel parts. Intel tech powers Ella’s chores: taking orders remotely via an online app, making your cup of coffee, notifying you when it’s ready, serving it, finalizing your bill, and charging your credit card.
