Barduino: Micro-controlled drink dispenser

Arduino Technology

Matthew Williams sent in his Barduino. It’s an Arduino powered bar monkey for your next party. Remember, alcohol and electronics don’t mix, but electronics can mix alcohol. [Thanks Matthew]

It was developed using the Ruby Arduino Framework ( and is driven using a Ruby DSL (domain specific language) so anyone can write simple recipes.

    Thanks Make for the mention!

    I also wrote up a blog post that explains the Barduino in greater detail with some more photos and it includes presentation slides that I used to present this to the Orlando Ruby Users Group.
