Erik Hobijn poses with the Mothuh of all mojito makers

At last weekend’s party for the youth of today, artist Erik Hobijn demonstrated the explosive power of his handheld cocktail launcher and created some unexpectedly delicious chunky style mojitos. Officially speaking, this cockbot is more of a cyborg mixer than a robot, and I wouldn’t have liked this boytoy if it was only for show. But the mojito was good, and it was awfully Environmentally Christian of Eric to not skimp on the size. Who likes drinking from a dinky glass? Sure as heq not me.

Is that a cock in your pocket or were you just happy to mix me up a banana daquiri?

Obviously Erik is open to using the Cocktail Pistol for peaceful purposes only, if one can call Happy Hour peaceful.

Make cocktails, not war!
