 Skittles Sorting Machine based on a Basic Stamp 2_2


If you like to dig through your bag of skittles to eat all of one color before moving on to the next this Skittles Sorting Machine might be just for you. It uses a BASIC Stamp 2 to control the system. A few sensors and actuators get the job of sorting done. The main thing at work here is a TAOS color sensor, this sensor allows the stamp to determine what type of skittle it is looking at. There is always some issue that crops up in a project like this and the creator mentions that dealing with the white “S” that is printed on one side of the Skittle made it hard to differentiate between a few colors.

Thanks for the tip Jeff.

    I wonder if the machine could be programmed to do what we all wanted in our childhoods.

    Sort out all the marshmallows in a box of lucky charms.

    just saying what we are all thinking
