HardWino is an open-source, Arduino-based cocktail maker

While it may not be the first (nor will it be the last) robotic bartender we’ve seen, Pierre Charlier has come up with a clever and affordable way to mix the perfect drink at home. Say hello to HardWino.

The automatic cocktail maker consists of a six-slot, rotating beverage holder that is controlled by an Arduino Mega and uses a TFT screen to accept orders. The project also includes stepper motors and L298 driver boards, which are supported by 3D-printed parts. Power is supplied through a 12V DC jack.

Charlier provides a step-by-step breakdown of the build in the video below. Keep in mind, however, that this is merely a prototype. We can’t wait to see the final result!
