When you visit your favorite cafe, you can count on your barista to make a coffee that’ll get you through the day. But what if that barista isn’t a human being? Monday, BrewBot, a robotic barista, will make its first public appearance in front of Wilson Library. It was built by a class of UNC students with backgrounds in programming, robotics, and marketing.

Henry Taylor visited the class to meet the robot and sip some coffee.
