The Inebriator is Like Tron Mixing You Drinks (Kinda)
Ever wished you had some kind of robotic bartender to perform your every cocktail whim? While it may not have the charm and conversational skills you're looking for, The Inebriator will mix you a cocktail and (apparently) play some tunes for you too? Check out the video above for this Arduino-powered bartender in action. The first thing we noticed was that it lacks an ability to shake a cocktail...maybe they just need to put a paint mixer at the end of the conveyor belt?
If you're wondering how it works:
...bottles lined up upside-down and optics providing set measures. The user places their glass on a pedestal and selects their drink of choice on the display at the front of the unit. The pedestal then moves along collecting the right spirits as it goes thanks to motors pushing the glass upwards at the appropriate moments. Finally it adds the mixers, connected as and when needed by nitrogen-pressurized tubes to deliver the final touches to the cocktails from a cooler located out of sight.
