Public Website

Basic Features

This is the minimum requirements to have a working version


  • Easily extensible to be able to add more bottles later
  • LED illumination of the spout


  • Web interface that can be accessed from a nearby computer
  • Web interface that can be used from our phones
  • Some sort of interaction with our IRC channel
  • Logging of which drinks are made, and how many shots are dispensed

BarBot Accounts

  • - Eventually BarBot will post stuff to twitter automatically
  • - We can use this account to host all the photos of the project to save bandwidth
  • - Only used to get the account
  • - This is the address we should publish

Plan of Action

  • Aaron will design the relay board and build one in his electronics class at LCC
  • We need to decide on which solenoids to use and actually buy a couple to try them out
  • After we figure out how to control the solenoids, we'll need to get a CO2 tank and start playing with bottles

Shot Conversions

  • 1 shot = 44.360ml / cc
  • 1 shot = 4.43 cl
  • 1 gallon = 85.334 shots
  • 1 shot = 3 tablespoons
  • 1 shot = 1.5 ounces
  • 1 cup = 5 1/3 shots
