JägerMachine: an IoT shot pouring machine powered by a Raspberry Pi #Python #CircuitPython #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi

The JägerMachine is an IoT shot pouring machine powered by a Raspberry Pi 3B+. It features a full GUI that allows the user to configure the device, pour a shot, and also check previous messages sent to the machine. Once paired with it’s own gmail account, the JägerMachine waits for emails containing a secret user defined subject line and a custom message that gets displayed on the screen. Once an email is received a shot is poured 🙂

Initially this project started as a gift for a friend. We always give each other Jagermeister related gifts as an inside joke, so I figured this would be PERFECT. It started out as a pretty bland render I threw together on Fusion 360 as seen below and slowly started getting more and more complicated.

Unfortunately I didn’t finish the project in time for my friends birthday (sorry Jon 🙁 ), but I continued on and kept adding features and I think It’s finally done! Some of the features currently supported are as mentioned above are:

  • Search for available WiFi connections and connect to them.
  • Manually pour a shot.
  • Pour a shot via email with a a message that gets displayed.
  • Hall effect sensor to detect when shot glass is placed/removed.
  • Enable/Disable LEDs

The project uses Python, including CircuitPython via the Blinka compatibility layer.
