We’ve built an Arduino + Raspberry Pi powered robotic bartender before, but it mixed drinks too slow to be practical. We want to build a new version which is faster, more accurate, and can mix more than one drink at a time. In this series, we plan to show you how to build all the components so that you can make your own.
In this video, we model the design, test the linear actuators, and build the spinning platform.
We want help from the community while working on this project. If you have an idea for features to add, or an improvement on design, post a comment and we’ll try to incorporate it.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
