New Zealand brewery Panhead Custom Ales have created a vending machine that dispenses free beer to guitarists. – but it only dispenses the booze if they’re good enough
The ‘slay to pay’ machine located in Wellington, uses AI to evaluate guitarists’ playing in real-time, rewarding top performers with beer.
Described as an ‘adult Guitar Hero’ the machine debuted at the Panhead Rolling Stone Music Awards, where it stringently judged even the country’s best guitarists.
