Candy Dispenser – Maker Club project

Skittles, Jelly Beans, Gummy Bears, and Sour Patch Kids? Heck yes!

This year, my Maker club decided to build a candy dispenser as our annual project.

With an Arduino as the brains, any one of four servo motors are activated to dispense the chosen Candy.

Our design was fairly loosely planned and driven by each group member’s curiosities. The user interacts using a rotary encoder with integrated push button, and a 16×2 character LCD screen.

I’ve included the Arduino code and final-product photos below:
