    A for effort dude!
    I actually prefer either making my own drinks, or having someone else make them for me. But hey, diff`rent strokes for diff`rent folks.

    or something.

    I saw a prototype of a commercial ersion of this back in the late eighties. I think it was on CNN and I haven`t seen or heard of it since. What was shown then used gallon jugs of liquor & mix. The facility was built against a wall with a room behind it with racks for the gallon jugs. In that time the report stated it wouldn`t make bar tenders obsolete but would free them to mix call drinks which would require carbonated fluids and other viscous liquids that this automated system wouldn`t lend itself to. Simple liquor and mixer drinks could be entered by the wait staff of a restaurant. This would provide faster service and more generous gratuities as well.

    I noticed in the report that the use of a credit card reader to charge the drink cost was addressed. This wasn`t spoken of in the original report I saw on TV but is a logical progression now.

    A friend of mine and I were quite interested back then. I`m glad to see this idea being rethought now and possibly remarketed.

    Well, that elaborate construction project would certainly be easier than mixing drinks by hand.

    reminds me of airport bars where every bottle is connected to a measuring device so that the bartenders can`t make you a strong drink without charging you more. cheap bastards.

    It is a good project, but im with Enohead on this one. Much quicker and easier if you do it yourself.

    Holy crap, that`s awesome.

    tambourine and enohead: I think the reason he bothered making this whole automated bar is because he regularly has alot of people at his house and he doesn`t want to be a host-bartender person. Just a theory though. nerd parties 8]
