Bartendro is a cocktail dispensing robot currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The robot works by using peristaltic pumps, "which dispense a known volume with every revolution of the motor to precisely meter our drinks". Powered by a Raspberry Pi (RPI) computer, simply connect your phone to its wireless network, fire up the browser and pick your drink.
Have you ever made or had a cocktail that was really perfect but was elusive to recreate? Have you ever wanted to know more about cocktails without drinking a lot to acquire the knowledge? We did. We wanted a machine that could pour complex cocktails in any size, including small tasters, that are proportionally accurate.
We were also fed up with precision dispensing technology being prohibitively expensive and wanted a more affordable solution that we and others could start using to make fun and interesting things.
We wanted to build a community where users could create, rate and share new drinks from around the world.
