“What good is technology if you can’t use it to serve yourself liquor?”
That question is the inspiration and only reasoning you need to learn about ShotBot – an Arduino based project that will automatically pour you a shot.
This project was created by the team at RobotGeek who uploaded a tutorial of how to make your own ShotBot to hackster.io.
At its core the ShotBot is simply a set of pumps hooked up to an Arduino that controls the amount of liquid that goes through the system.
This version of the project uses a simple button press to make the alcohol flow, but RobotGeek suggest replacing it with sensors to make your night out even fancier.
As there are two pumps the build will dish out two shots at a time. We sincerely hope someone takes the idea and makes one large enough to serve the whole bar.
This really isn’t the most advanced or useful project we’ve featured on the site before, but we got such a chuckle out of it the first time we saw it, we had to share it.
In fact, RobotGeek even mentions this at the end of the tutorial and suggest checking out the “The Drinkinator” if you’re still in the mood for boozy bots. Drinkinator is an automated bartender that can mix several types of alcohol together to form new drinks.
