Introducing Tao Bin Smart Robotic Barista: Revolutionizing Malaysia's Beverage Industry
Tao Bin, the innovative sensation hailing from Thailand, has made a noteworthy entrance into Malaysia with a groundbreaking invention designed to revolutionize the way Malaysians enjoy their beverages. Introducing the Smart Robotic Barista, a state-of-the-art machine boasting an extensive menu of over 180 freshly crafted choices, all packaged within a remarkably compact one-square-meter footprint.
The Smart Robotic Barista caters to a diverse range of tastes, offering a wide selection of options, including multi-flavored drinks like sodas and smoothies, protein shakes, as well as beloved classics such as coffee and tea. To ensure a personalized experience, health-conscious consumers can easily tailor the sweetness level to their liking, ranging from zero sugar to 100%, ensuring that every drink aligns perfectly with individual preferences. Additionally, Tao Bin is deeply committed to sustainability, employing recyclable materials like Polypropylene (PP#5) for all cups, lids, and straws.
What sets this innovation apart is its "smart robotic" design, seamlessly integrating advanced robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver an unparalleled beverage experience. Leveraging IoT technology, Tao Bin collects real-time data on usage and ingredient levels, enabling precise optimization of operations to ensure ingredients are consistently stocked and readily available. Payment is made convenient through various e-wallet options, including DuitNow QR, GrabPay, TnGo e-wallet, and more.
Moti Utam, Chief Technology and Operations Officer of Tao Bin Sdn Bhd, stated, "Through the power of IoT technology, we have the capability to collect real-time data on usage and ingredient levels, facilitating precise operational optimization to ensure the consistent availability of our ingredients. Furthermore, we have made the payment process exceptionally convenient, offering e-wallet options like DuitNow QR."
The "Tao Bin Has Landed" event took place at Publika Shopping Gallery over the weekend, during which the company introduced the Smart Robotic Barista to guests and the public. Demonstrations showcased how to use the machine, allowing customers to explore the extensive range of 180+ beverage choices and witness the machine's precision and speed in creating drinks.
Tao Bin Sdn Bhd initiated the deployment of these machines in the Klang Valley area in June 2023, with over 30 units already installed in prominent locations, including Sunway College, Thomson Hospital, Mahsa University, Nottingham University, MITEC, Lalaport GMB, 3 Damansara, MyKart@Tropicana Gardens Mall, private offices, and condominiums. The expansion of this exciting technology began in the Klang Valley and extended to Penang just before Merdeka Day, with four machines already in operation. Ambitious plans are underway for further expansion into cities like Seremban, Melaka, and Johor. By the end of this year, Tao Bin is committed to deploying up to 250 units of these machines, ensuring convenient access for Malaysians across the country.
Johnson Fung, the Chief Executive Officer of Tao Bin Sdn Bhd, expressed, "By the end of this year, Tao Bin is committed to deploying up to 250 units of Smart Robotic Barista machines, and we hope the beverages we offer will become the choice of the Malaysian people." The expansion of this exciting technology began in the Klang Valley and extended to Penang just before Merdeka Day, with eight machines already in operation at Kompleks Bukit Jambul, The One Academy Penang, 1st Avenue Mall, Megamal Pinang, Butterworth Bus Terminal, and Prangin Mall. Ambitious plans are underway for further expansion into cities like Seremban, Melaka, and Johor.
Deploying the Smart Robotic Barista is remarkably easy, requiring only a one-square-meter space, and there is no need for a water supply at the location. Tao Bin provides its own water to guarantee the highest quality and consistency of beverages across all locations.
