Every so often while browsing the internet I will come across a project that I absolutely have to make. When I stumbled upon IVC’s Candy Sorting Machine, this was absolutely the case. When my girlfriend eats skittles, she does so by colour – don’t ask me why, she just does; when I watched the video of the candy machine on YouTube, I knew it was going to be the perfect gift for my girlfriend for her birthday. Since this was going to be a gift I really wanted to create it almost on a consumer level in terms of design. I wanted it to be simple to use and made so anyone can just turn it on and and it will sort.
