BaR2D2 - Automated Mobile Bar


Always wanted your own personal beer-and-liquor-dispensing droid? Look no further than BaR2D2, a creation dreamed up by this guy over at instructables.com. BaR2D2 is a radio-controlled, mobile bar that possesses the following amazing capabilities:

- motorized beer elevator
- motorized ice/mixer drawer
- six-bottle shot dispenser
- sound activated neon lighting
- radio controlled through a wireless remote transmitter


The coolest part about it is the guy built this thing himself using parts assembled in his garage. The website gives you complete instructions on how to build it yourself if you are A: smart, B: good with electronics and woodworking and C: have a few solid months of free time to be able to build it.

The creator mentions that he has plans for improvements on the original model early this year including linking the device via Bluetooth to a laptop with an extensive drink database to be able to send drink recipe commands to BaR2D2 for mixed drinks made to order. This is all sorts of bad-ass and I wish I had one living at my house. Maybe I will in the year two-thousand.
