The intention of this project is to define a new way of distributing liquor. The project will consist of a device which will measure and track liquor being poured and associate it with a person, either a bartender or a bar patron. The challenges will be controlling the flow of liquor and recording it in an extremely accurate manner as well as processing data quickly so that a pour can be initiated very soon after a person is identified. The liquor dispenser will open up the possibility of a person being able to dispense their own liquor in a controlled manner, by tying them to an account that must be funded, and identifying them using a smartphone. Important statistical information collected will be shown to the bar manager via a mobile app.
