Drink Making Unit @ Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories – nice work! EMSL writes –
One of the many kinds of machines that we have never made before is a cocktail robot. But recently, after being invited to participate in Barbot 2010, we put together this little drink mixer. Cocktail robots are a funny breed. No two seem to work the same way and many (like ours) have few enough moving parts to barely count as robots at all. The granddaddy cocktail robotics event is Roboexotica (for which you can read about last years robots here, but we’re showing off our machine tonight and tomorrow night, much closer to home at the DNA lounge in San Francisco. Our machine is named “Drink Making Unit.” (Descriptive, isn’t it?) It has three fluid paths, and can produce cocktails with up to three components. It has an integrated 8×8 RGB LED matrix that it uses for data display, and an ice bucket to chill drinks as they go through the system.
Made with the open source Meggy Jr RGB (in our store).
