Schrödinger’s Martini: Geiger Counter as mixologist

Josh Meyer and Jonathan Foote created this scintillating cocktail robot for Barbot 2013. They also exhibited it at the DNA Lounge Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge last July.

A MightyOhm Geiger Counter samples radioactive decay from a martini glass that contains a small amount of uranium. If the number of clicks in a set period is even, the robot dispenses vermouth into the glass. If the count is odd, it dispenses gin, therefore creating a wet or dry martini based on the random process of radioactive decay.

Adding an ESP8266 + OLED Interface to the Mightyohm Geiger Counter

Icarus has written a tutorial on connecting the MightyOhm Geiger Counter to an ESP8266 module and OLED display. His code (written in LUA for NodeMcu) is available on github. He is using the Wemos D1 mini board.

Place your holiday orders by November 30th!

News flash –

As I mentioned on The Amp Hour, I’ll be traveling abroad for most of December. If you’d like to order a Geiger Counter or HV Rescue Shield, make sure to place your order by next Thursday, November 30th. I’ll update the shipping status page to reflect this.

If you are interested in purchasing a Geiger counter kit and miss the deadline, no worries! You can also purchase one from Adafruit.

Happy Holidays!
