BaR2D2 - A Mobile Robot Bartender
     




Inspired by a Radio-Controlled cooler, Jamie Price got
the idea to build a robot bar named BaR2D2.
The result is a robot loaded with sound-activated neon lighting,
motorized drawer for ice and mixers, and a rotating beer turntable that
rotates
beer bottles into position, where they are lifted to serving level by an
elevator. It's also equipped with a six bottle shot dispenser. The base for the
robot was constructed from an electric wheelchair obtained on
Craigslist for $75. A 12VDC, 35 AH battery provides power. Victor
883 Speed Controllers are used with differential drive steering.
While BaR2D2 needs to be controlled via radio at present, perhaps
someone will tackle an autonomous creation along these lines. Such a
beast would no doubt do
well in the ROBOEXOTICA
bartending robot competition.
