Bar Progress

/ /

Been working back on the UI for the bar machine. Still a bunch of stuff to figure out but got a lot taken care of.

  • PIN pad for login
  • Page user level restriction
  • Change drink sizes (glasses)
  • System Status page
  • Sorting of drink listing
  • Rating Display.
  • Sliding pages for drink listing


has been working on the woodworking for the cabinet box thing. I think the album is private but I’ll post a couple of pics.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I actually saw that before and I was going to go with the similar pressure system but I was having difficulties getting a corking setup going so ended up switching to a soda pump. I wanted to use the existing bottles that come with the liquor and I didn’t want to have to swap containers so that was the best method after a bunch of trial and error. Then just like most other systems the board and software are different. I wanted to go a totally different route on the software so made it very user friendly and to go away from the normal POS style interface so when its on public/party mode anyone can use it.

    I don’t have any kits available since I’m still working on everything. I have had a few people asking me the same thing so hopefully once I get it all completed and running I can offer something like that for people.

    Hey i was wondering what you were using to design the UI and how easy it is to interact with the arduino. Im a beginner at programing but would love to be able to make a clean looking Interface.

    • Chris says:

      The UI is actually PHP. There is a Arduino PHP library that I used to do that. Its fairly simple once you get it setup, its basically just a serial connection so as long as you know how to go back and forth with serial its the same thing just coded in PHP.

What do you think?
