In science fiction, robots often appear as cold, emotionless machines designed to search and destroy. In Las Vegas, they appear bearing cupcakes, cookie dough, champagne and cocktails. From vending machines to robotic bartenders, automated food and drink options are increasingly prevalent on the Strip. Some serve as a sort of only-in-Vegas novelty, while others offer 24-hour convenience for late-night cravings. They may not be a match for living, breathing human servers, but these machines certainly give the standard chips-and-soda vending options a run for their money.

Diners who would rather lick the spoon than eat freshly baked cookies have a new haven at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort. Doughp (pronounced “dope”) not only serves up edible and safe cookie dough, but it also offers a 24-hour vending machine. Cleverly called the “Doughp Dealer,” this automated option makes it possible to get jars of cookie dough in flavors including Cinnamood (snickerdoodle with white chocolate chops) and Basic Bae (confetti sprinkles) whenever a sugar craving strikes.

A cupcake ATM

The delightfully pink sight of the ATM at Sprinkles Cupcakes & Ice Cream is a touch more whimsical than the type one encounters at a local bank. Instead of dispensing cash, this one dispenses cupcakes. Located at The Linq Promenade, this 24-hour machine doles out classic flavors including red velvet, vanilla, milk chocolate, and cinnamon sugar.

A robot bartender

Despite the name, the Tipsy Robot isn’t a drunk android; it’s a mechanical mixologist that is able to produce customized cocktails in under two minutes. Patrons can order speciality cocktails or create their own via tablets and then watch the robotic arms shake, stir, and muddle. Real life bar backs are on site to assist, which is comforting to those who might fear a takeover from the machines.

Champagne vending machine at Waldorf Astoria

A champagne vending machine

Offering a new meaning to the phrase “bottle service,” Waldorf Astoria’s champagne vending machine is ready and waiting to deliver bubbly to anyone who feels like celebrating. Located on the 23rd floor of the hotel, the vending machine dispenses mini bottles of Moet and disposable flutes. Visitors can purchase speciality coins from the front desk, insert them into the machine, and get the party started.
