In 2015, you can push a few buttons on your phone and get pretty much anything you want. You can go shopping from your phone, order takeout…but can you get candy on demand from your phone?
Redditor b10nik rigged a Jelly Belly candy dispenser up to an Internet connection and made an iPhone-powered machine. Check out his handiwork below, and make sure to watch the video of the machine in action at the bottom!
He started out by taking apart the jelly bean dispenser.
He put in a stepper motor to power the machine.
This little mechanism provides the Internet connection, and also makes the motor turn.
He put all of the parts into the bottom of the machine.
Then it was time to try it out before sealing the bottom.
See how it works below! No cash required.
This is so cool! If I had the tech skills, I would make so many iPhone-powered machines. How about an iPhone-powered wine opener? Or just a Jetsons-style robot maid?
