Arduino Powered M&Ms and Skittles Sorting Machine

M&Ms and Skittles Sorting Machine

Rejoice, Now you can sort your favotire color candy with this helpful gadget, it is created by 19-year-old Willem Pennings. It is a Arduino-powered machine that quickly sorts M&Ms and Skittles by color using a color sensor, stepper motor, and 3D-printed parts to direct the flow of candy into six bowls. Watch it in in action below, it is some what satisfying to watch it sorting out.

A sorting machine that is able to sort candy by colour has been on my to-do list for multiple years. I finally managed to complete it after working on it for several months in my free time. It uses an Arduino controller, stepper motors, an RGB colour sensor and 3D-printed parts to sort several types of candy by their respective colours.
