Neat!

Unfortunately, I quit drinking to improve my health  :med:

Now if we could get it to serve other things!

All you need to do is change the containers. Isn't that what we would do here at "Mad Modder", make things to fit our taste.  :D

Oh you want a pizza-wings serving robot. I don't know if 12 volts would be enough to fry those wings. Ofcourse you'd want sauce on them wings, right?  :thumbup:

As hot as it can be! Love the hot and spicy!

on a side note, when we went on our cruise... I picked up a bottle of Marie Sharps hot sauce. Yummy stuff!

I was very willing to try hot sauces until about 6 months ago :(

Endorphine Rush... at Tijuana Flats. A Taco/Burrito chain that specialises in Hot sauces.

It was really quite bad. ONE TINY DROP...   I mean really.. On miniscule drop on the edge of a taco.. and I took a BIG bite.

I was on the floor, (Yes I swallowed it etc) nose running, eyes running, mouth over salivating, heart palpitating, shakes, chills, cold sweat, ENTIRE BODY hurt like I had been electrocuted.  :zap: (I have been hit by the High tension lead from a 25" monitor a couple times, as well as 110 and 220 over the years)

http://hotfoods.tijuanaflats.com/store/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=23


Painful.


Since then.. I feel born again. When someone offers me a hot sauce, or some really powerful hotsauce.. I can happily deny it. Even them taunting me and giving me a hard time.. Im ok with it. :)

Kinda like where I am with Motorcycles nowadays.
I rode a ZX-11 D model, that a friend owned. 175 to the rear wheel WITHOUT the 100 shor of NO2. Air shifter, flat slides, diferent sprockets, lowered, dual shimmy dampers.
There is an illegal race in Ft. Lauderdale area where bikes go side by side along the interstate late at night at 55mph. When they reach a specific overpass.. they both gun it. Whomever gets to the next overpass first wins. Its acceleration AND top speed. They all do well in excess of 200MPH.
The bike I rode was built for that.
After I got to 195,  :wack: and there was 1/4 throttle left.. I decided the bike was faster than I wanted to go.. so I let off.
After that.. I feel no need to prove anything to myself on a bike. I have been faster than I ever care to go again on a bike. The shimmy on deceleration that almost tossed me prolly helped a little.

So hot sauce to me is like that.. I cheated death so to speak.

Now I do a hotter sauce for the flavor.. not the heat.


That robot dealing out Mt. Dew and Chips and Salsa.. and Im happy :)

I was in Buffalo this past weekend.  My BiL lives a couple of miles from The Anchor Bar, the place that invented hot wings.  They sell sauce in glass bottles.  Really good stuff; hot enough to have a kick, but not too hot to cover up the flavor.  I bought a couple bottles for my stash.

I was just sitting here in front of the computer after lunch and enjoying a Molson Golden when an idea creep into my mind. :med:

If you really wanted to create a sophisticated drink serving robot make it bigger. Here's the idea. It can carry at least a case of every beer that your establishment carries, same for the hard liquor, could mix any drink you wanted, is voice activated. I would think any computer control nerd would be glad to help out with the electronics design and a home shop machinist could provide the machining.  :beer:

 :wack: :wack: :wack: Ok, I'm back now.
