A Robot that Bring you beer automatically – BREWSTER

A Robot that Bring you beer automatically - BREWSTER
BREWSTER was developed to take cold beers from the fridge and bring it to you by itself. It is script controlled and it’s using Ezb and roomba platform.

For the curious, the ...

The WiFi adapter and webcam attach directly to the Qwerk via its on-board usb ports; the servo motors are also connected via ...
