DIY LEGO McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets Vending Machine: Off the Chain

YouTuber Astonishing Studios loves to make candy dispensers using LEGO. But recently he’s been making equally cute machines for other edibles, such as his viral hit, the McFlurry maker. His latest work is for another McDonald’s product, the mysterious Chicken McNuggets.

The machine’s dispensing mechanism is controlled by a Mindstorms system. A light sensor detects when a coin is inserted, triggering the motor that pushes the nuggets and a packet of dip into their respective holes with the help of gravity. Meanwhile, its coin detection is cleverly simple and fully analog. The coin slot is as wide as a 2 Euro coin and has no bottom. Since other Euro coins are smaller, they’ll fall through the slot and out of the machine. A 2 Euro coin, on the other hand, will go on to block the light sensor before making its way to a drawer that’s accessible from the back of the machine.

We now know more about what’s inside this machine – which we didn’t know existed until moments ago – than what’s inside McNuggets. McIlluminati confirmed.
