Inspired by a Radio-Controlled cooler, Jamie Price got the idea to build a robot bar named BaR2D2. The result is a robot loaded with sound-activated neon lighting, motorized drawer for ice and mixers, and a rotating beer turntable that rotates beer bottles into position, where they are lifted to serving level by an elevator. It's also equipped with a six bottle shot dispenser. The base for the robot was constructed from an electric wheelchair obtained on Craigslist for $75. A 12VDC, 35 AH battery provides power. Victor 883 Speed Controllers are used with differential drive steering. While BaR2D2 needs to be controlled via radio at present, perhaps someone will tackle an autonomous creation along these lines. Such a beast would no doubt do well in the ROBOEXOTICA bartending robot competition.
