The Drinkmotizer - a Raspberry Pi Drink Mixing Robot [Project]

"On every engineer's senior design short list is/was a drink mixing robot. One of the few projects that's fun at parties. You want the Drinkmotizer at your party... You need the Drinkmotizer at your party... At some point, dexterity for drink mixing is lost at a gathering. Drinkmo is your designated, sober, mixologist. Your enabler. Your friend.

I know what you are thinking, "hey, there are other drink mixing bots out there, what makes this one different?" This one doesn't break the bank. It's DIY, Open, expandable. Artistically speaking, It isn't just a nozzle that sprays alcohol at objects, it uses the actual bottle, and gravity.

The concept is based on a CNC lathe I built. My goal was to make something a bit faster, slightly less precise, and upgradeable. Drinkmo is all that. In the video I show six bottle stations and one chaser spout. That particular setup, being four feet long, can have up to sixteen bottles and still have the chaser spot. Technically, I could build a Drinkmo that is twenty feet long having 80 bottles on it! I thought that would be cool to see at a bar somewhere.

Here were my requirements of

- Use the original drink bottles

- Be expandable

- Single button interface

- Be inexpensive (relatively to the other bot options)"
