Drunktender lives! A brief live demo.

I used red and blue water to create purple water to demonstrate the functionality of the hardware and software.  Trust me, it has a wicked kick back.

You should make that last bit of tubing a little wider so that the liquid doesn't get stuck in there and end up being poured into the next drink

@asdf yeah, a friend who is a chemist recommended doing a blast of CO2 and also do an angled cut on the tip.

If I have a wider tube at the end, I get a bit too much splashing.

Great work you really are a genius can I have schematics for this project.I am thinking of using cream with it .Also I found this project of 4 MIT students Automated Bartender

Waiting for you next great project

@MOH, I think their solution does have some advantages over mine by using the pumps. But their system's cost per liquid far exceeds mine as they use pumps and I use a pure CO2 system. Also another reason why I didn't go with the pumps is I wasn't sure how much damage having alcohol in them would do. I wanted a very dependable and swapable system. Alcohol can do some damage to parts like pumps so I wanted them removed from my system. The idea of replacing 50 to 100 dollar parts every few months doesn't seem like a fun task.

PS University of Massachusetts isn't MIT. :-)

On the login screen I wouldnt even say "log in" I would just have an animation of someone touching an rfid card to the reader, I would strip out the "welcome <user name>" instead of a "signout" button I would just have a "done" button.

Excellent project, I'm well impressed.
Soon you will be seeing these everywhere, with touchscreen systems and other stuff. Can't wait! Keep up the good work.

Im quite disappointed that you haven't come further with this project.
hopefully you'll find time to work on it.

luckily there are some other simmilar projects to give me hope

@irlolcopter the project is in a fully functional form and has been demoed at a few conferences already. Full blown instructions will be posted in a few months.

This looks like a really useful invention. It should be patented in some way. :)
