M&Ms and Skittles Flavor Sorting Machine: Split the Rainbow

by Conner Flynn

Are you the kind of candy diva who buys a bag of Skittles, only to eat certain colors? Maybe you work for one who makes you pluck them out for them. Either way, this machine will sort M&M’s and Skittles by color easily, because you don’t need to taste the rainbow.

19-year-old Willem Pennings built this Arduino-powered machine that makes quick work of the task. It uses a color sensor, stepper motor, and 3D-printed parts to direct the flow of candy into six bowls. Now you can just eat what you want, without having to wade through all of them by hand. Seems weird to me, but I don’t judge.
