By Dorothy Tan, 11 Dec 2012
People have been known to create pretty awesome machines with LEGO Mindstorm kits, but this Christmas-themed M&M sorting machine is the coolest we have seen in a while.
This fun robotic masterpiece was constructed by Gizmodo reader Jan Gerritsen—also known as “Nxe1engineer”—who also built this amazing beer machine that serves up perfectly chilled bottles of beer.
Using a color sensor that scans each M&M individually, the machine is able to sort them accurately into their respective color slots.
Watch the machine in action in the video below—it also comes with a timely holiday greeting.
