Skittle Sorter

I had been working on a machine that sorts skittles by color. It’s made out of 3D printed parts, PVC pipe and some aluminum extrusion. It was a fun challenge, since I have given myself only a week to work on it. The entire design is from scratch, some parts are scavenged, some parts are there because it was all I could find. Between bouts of exhaustion, I remember how much fun and gratification there is in building something that exists physically, with the challenge of a deadline and the creativity that comes from using whatever is available.
