Verb — Drinkbot
A machine that will be able to produce your desired cocktail or drink based on predetermined options to choose from.
The machine will be operating on a traditional X,Y,Z gantry. It will have two components mounted on the railings:
1. Circular Rotational Plate: It can hold up to 7 bottles. Bottles will be filled with your desire drink and mixer first. Refill when needed. Once the desired drink is chosen, the machine will start pouring the necessary portions. Also attached to the plate will be a mixing “spoon”. Once all the pouring has been done the machine will stir the drink.
2. Ice Bucket: It will be fixed on the right side of the machine’s top railings, making sure the glass gets the appropriate amount of ice based on the selection of either a short glass or tall glass. It will be designed with a slight downwards angle so for the ice to be always reaching the output hole.
3. Glass Holder: It can hold up to 4 glasses per use. Glasses once placed on the holder will trigger a sensor which will determine the position of each glass so the pouring can be done correctly.
4. Controller: It will give you the following options to chose from: Cocktail list, make your own drink (based on the drinks and mixers filled in), random cocktail.
