About

The Barman was the worlds first Bluetooth 4.0 cocktail-mixing platform for your smartphone. The Barman II takes everything great about the original Barman, and makes it even better. We have worked out the bugs, improved the capacitive touch buttons, and are releasing the Barman II as an open-source device. This makes the capabilities of the Barman endless.

 Just pick any drink you want to make in our Android or IOS application, pick your drink size, and mix it!   You can customize any drink just the way you like it.  The Barman uses a proprietary drink scaling algorithm so that your cocktail will taste the same no matter what size you make. 

The Barman's glass-illumination CREE LED's will illuminate your glass or shaker blue when the Barman is ready to mix.  The display will tell you what to pour.   As you pour, the progress indicator will move across the display letting you know how much you have left to pour.    When the progress indicator has reached the end of the display, the Barman will illuminate the glass or shaker red, letting you know to stop pouring.   It's that simple!

About Us:

We are an American start-up company that focuses on creative, simple, solutions for complex problems.  We specialize in mobile technology, Bluetooth 4.0, and IOT.   We successfully crowd-funded the original Barman with the help of Kickstarter, and have been improving the design ever since.  We have proven that we are more that capable of delivering a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign.  

Risks and challenges

Hardware manufacturing is very complicated, but fortunately we are the veterans this round. The tooling is all finished, and the relationship with our manufacturer has been established. We are simply improving upon a design which has already proven itself as successful. We have therefore minimized the risks, challenges, and obstacles that many other hardware projects face.
