Skittles sorting machine

Posted on Friday, January 11th, 2013 in DIY, Parallax Propeller by DP

Ever wanted to eat only the red colored skittles? Now you can, as Brian designed a Skittles sorting machine based around a Basic Stamp 2 board. The candy is one by one placed on a turn table which swings each one by a TCS3200-DB Color Sensor. Next up a tube mounted on a servo motor dispenses the candy to sorting containers.

    Love it, I want to adapt it to sort my son’s lego (tough because of the size variation).

    This is friggin awesome :) Though I am curious on the creation of the beast, i’m appalled at the price of the TCS3200-DB Color Sensor. 60 USD for a color sensor?
