We've been sifting the Interwebs for booze and robots for a while now, and we've just found a nugget that looks like pure gold. You might remember Bar2D2, a booze-serving robot that was pinging around the Internet about a year ago. That was cool as hell, but the idea of building a fully-functional robot seemed a bit daunting.
That's why we like the idea of just ripping out the robot's brain and hooking it up to a laptop, and forcing it to spit out drinks on our every whim. For one thing it seems a lot simpler for us to operate it. For two things, it seems much less likely to uprise against its human overlord and shoot me with some kind of laser. Check out the video of what the Robotic Drink Mixer is capable of below, and get the full instructions for how to build your own at Instructables.
