Im going on a 10-day road trip doing my other hobby - flying RC planes "first person view" (with video goggles on).

The hardware rework is done, and things are no longer just hot glued to the back of the machine. I am however going away for the next 10 days.

It turns out that taking a completely undocumented file format and trying to make sense of it is really hard.

Software side is using .NET Core 3.0, Razor components running on a Pi, with the IoT library for controlling Pi hardware.

Mainly went this way because C# dev is part of my day job and i like the new razor components in 3.0.

The 6 pumps you see are peristaltic pumps. Chosen for accuracy in pouring small amounts. They flatten anything carbonated though, so there's some air pumps in the back for pumping soda.

I plan on giving updates on what I'm working on here, since I'm useless at writing blogs. I'm hoping i can stick to short regular updates.

Here's my cocktail machine. I'm currently writing the software for it!
