We’re currently looking for funds for the first fill of the auto-bartender machine (named iZac). This will cost around $140. Is this covered under this category?:
Proposed events / collaborations that will involve financial sponsorship
A lot of us in the spaceship are collaborating on an auto-bartender using no computers *. We will create a project wiki page for this project to describe it further, how it works, etc. It’s home will be at Noisebridge 99% of the time, so we view this as a collaboration with Noisebridge to bring donations into the space.
Details of note as it relates to the first fill:
- Locked cabinet on top of machine holds the $140 investment.
- RFID system to grant access to the machine (and also verifies the person is 21+).
- Donation-based system that will display a suggested donation ($5-10) per-drink choice.
