Pi-powered ‘Smart Bartender’ | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

The recently re-branded Hacker Shack are back with a great new addition to their project line-up: a Pi-powered ‘Smart Bartender’ that dispenses liquid via six peristaltic pumps for precise mixology! The design can of course be modified (easily) for non-alcoholic drinks or even expanded upon for all types of mixing at the push of a button. Check out the video below for a thorough build, step-by-step, and see the full guide (including code and schematics) here when you’re ready to build your own 🙂

Tired of paying $12 for a small drink at the bars? Well be tired no more. You can have your very own personal bartender in your home, and also be the envy of your friends. We built a smart, Raspberry Pi powered bartender that can make drinks by mixing up to 6 ingredients together at the same time, so you can have anything from a rum and coke to a long island iced tea.

The bartender can be customized to make any number of drinks, can be expanded to mix more ingredients, and also has the potential for connectivity with Alexa and Google Home / Google Assistant.

The drinks can be configured on the bartender with two simple buttons and a screen, and you can add any number of drinks to the bartender’s repository through the bartender’s code.

Check out our video below to see how it works and how we built it:

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.
