Raspberry Pi Candy Dispenser #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From Arduino “having11” Guy on Hackster.io:

The aim of this project was to improve on my previous candy dispenser by making a new one that is more interactive and aesthetically pleasing.

In early May I published a project documenting my building and usage of a candy dispenser that I had built as part of being a beta tester for the Google AIY Projects Kit. It was well received, garnering about 3 thousand views in just 2 weeks, and 4 articles being written on it.

Overall, it was a worthwhile and successful project, but I wasn’t satisfied. The Maker Community can be summed up with this saying: “Have an idea, create the product, and innovate on it.” I decided that a basic box with limited functionality was nowhere near as exciting as it needed to be. So I set out to build a better, smarter, and more connected machine. This time it would be a lot easier, as I had just finished building a new CNC router (the MillRight CNC M3 kit), which would enable me to create much more precise parts with a higher degree of aesthetics and accuracy, rather than using a jigsaw.
