Built for the 2020 Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge: Quarantine Addition The Barback is perfect for the mad robotics on the go. Since being built it has been featured at dozens of parties, somehow, without ever having been recharged. Maybe it runs on the drunken joy it brings to everyone it meets.

Barback V2: Framework

The Barback was a smashing success for fact it was banged out over little more than a weekend hackathon. It’s been to dozens of parties, served countless cocktails and has been on several bike rides. It’s never been recharged, the straps are falling off, in addition to always having been a bit janky, and the code has barely been updated. So it’s time for Barback V2. I’ve been working the design for V2 for quite a while but never felt ready enough to move onto CAM.
