As a recent college graduate, I find myself with a bit more time in the evenings after work to come up with cool projects to do in my spare time.
Surprisingly, after 9 semesters as an electrical engineering student at Washington State University, I never touched or fiddled with this little device called an Arduino.
I am starting this journey into the world of Arduino with a project that I thought would be most useful and entertaining. An automated bartender. Comically named “The Liquorator”.
I chose this project over all others because of how useful it could potentially be. After learning to appreciate a good cocktail in college (mixed by a human), I thought, why couldn’t this be automated. There is a procedure to make a specific drink, so why not program a machine to do it?
There are many different designs out there on the internet, some of which I am using ideas from, and adding my own twists to make it my own. But my main goal here, above all else, is to make this machine as simple as possible. I tend to over-complicate things, so I am using this opportunity to design a simple system that still completes the functions I need.
I will be posting pictures, videos, and lots of notes about my first Arduino adventure.
Time to have some fun. 🙂
