David from Canada has designed this really cool and quick 5 step candy dispensing bot. A candy dispensing bot. DIY. Yes, you heard us right! Here is the list of the things you need:
· Raspberry Pi
· WiFi Adapter or Ethernet cable
· Wires with female plugs for connecting to a container or RPI Candy Plastic pop-bottle
You can get the candy dispensing code which he has written from the link below along with tutorials. If you’re using WiFi then you need to change a few settings, so that it connects automatically. Again, you can get the tutorial for it in the link. Save the code to your Pi, on the Twitter App site add a new app and generate an API key, update the config file and wire up your servo. You might want to use an independent power supply for your bot.
Check out the link below for a more detailed explanation of the connections and videos.
