Skittles Sorting Machine 3 Sorts Other Types of Candy, Needs Its Name Sorted Out

by Lambert Varias

Last year we found out about Brian Egenriether’s pet project – a machine that automatically separates Skittles by color. It’s fun to watch it work, but ultimately it was a novelty invention because it went about its task at a leisurely pace. It turns out Brian kept working on his machine and has finished its third version.


The Skittles Sorting Machine 3 can sort different types of Skittles as well as M&M’s and Reese’s Pieces candies. It’s easy to use too – there’s an on and off switch up top, and a series of switches on the body lets you indicate what candy you’re about to put in. It’s also more polished than its predecessor, thanks to the parts that Brian made using machinable epoxy. There’s only one problem:

Yep, it’s still slow. The Skittles Sorting Machine 3 – more practical, still impractical. You can find out more about the machine on the video’s description on YouTube.
