We have equipped our Droid with a tray, so it can deliver drinks.
We used the new, incredible Droid Inventor Kit from littleBits to create it.
The tray that we have made sits on Droid's shoulders. The Droid will rush to deliver the drink as soon as the glass is placed on the tray. When the drink is delivered and removed from the tray, the Droid will stop, waiting for another order to deliver.
There is a proximity sensor Bit on the tray that triggers when the glass is placed and makes the Droid move. Once you take the drink off, the sensor deactivates and the Droid stops moving.
The source of inspiration to create this Droid was an episode from Star Wars series, called “Return of the Jedi”, 1983. In the episode C3-PO works as a translator for the cruel Droid EV-9D9, while the R2 unit serves drinks so it can stick around.
We have included all templates and instructions, so you can easily make the same!
