TOMBOT ‘The Bionic Barkeep’ Uses Adafruit Tech to Pour Exactly 30ml of @Dewars Scotch Whisky
Thanks to the multiple people who sent this in recently!
Spotted over at Motherboard, roboticist Robb Godshaw built TOMBOT ‘The Bionic Barkeep’ for the Dewar’s blended Scotch whisky brand and some Adafruit components & parts make cameos in the video 🙂
Perfection is a moving target. Especially when you’re single-handedly bringing a personality-filled robot to life. For roboticist Robb Godshaw and his companion TOMBOT, it’s all about the process. Robb’s dedication to his craft comes through in the smallest details, each carefully chosen element coming together to bring his unique vision into the world.
Also reminds me of the bionic bartenders B1-0 and N1-C who serve aboard the cruise ship MS Quantum of the Seas.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
