The WineBOT - How We Made a Robot That Pours Wine on Television

Two trademarks of the lighthearted fourth hour of TODAY hosted by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are hashtag battles and wine. We fused the two elements in the TODAY WineBOT. We like to refer to it as data visualization using IoT and alcohol. Instead we will re-create the WineBOT in front of the audience but putting it all together using new hardware and with a bit of live coding. Assuming it all comes together, the audience will then be able to take part in a WineBOT live voting session.
