Because they need toÂ takeÂ difference bottles,Â pour the contentsÂ into the glasses and mixÂ everything.
Drink-one has been created toÂ solve this problem,Â in factÂ itÂ makes allÂ these processesÂ simultaneously,Â over a short period ofÂ time.
This projectÂ aimsÂ toÂ prepare drinks more easily and faster; thanks toÂ aÂ highly interactiveÂ interfaceÂ withÂ 3Â buttons andÂ a displayÂ for the selectionÂ of the liquor from a list.
We have designed and builtÂ a complexÂ electronically structure butÂ at the same timeÂ simple and functional,
It includes: a printed circuit, a matrix board, 5 suction pumps, an lcd display and 3 buttons , interconnetted among them through a central unit managed by arduino which is located in the matrix Board.
We have chosenÂ the use of arduinoÂ becauseÂ it is mostÂ usedÂ platformÂ for learning andbasicÂ project managementÂ relatedÂ to automation andÂ electronics.
The operation can beÂ summed upÂ inÂ 5Â steps:
1.Â place theÂ glassÂ below theÂ injector.
2.Â the available drinksÂ will be seen on theÂ lcdÂ display, using theÂ 3Â buttonsÂ you can selectÂ the drink, scrolling back or forth in the menu.
3.Â after the selectionÂ of the beverage,Â arduino through our softwareÂ activates theÂ suction pumpsÂ for the appropriate number ofÂ seconds,Â enoughÂ to takeÂ the rightÂ amountÂ of fluid necessary.
4. pumpsÂ are activatedÂ and aspireÂ throughÂ tubesÂ the liquid contained in 5Â bottlesÂ positioned inside of the structure.
5.Â theÂ 5Â small tubesÂ thatÂ collectÂ the substanceÂ from bottlesÂ join in oneÂ tubeÂ thatÂ throughÂ an injectorÂ pour contentÂ into the glass.

BothÂ from aboutÂ 3Â yearsÂ we cultivateÂ passion for informatics and electronicsÂ andÂ this prompted us toÂ inventÂ and realizeÂ aÂ project to be presentedÂ at maker faire.
