A fully-fledged vending machine that combines milk and pudding powder to form pudding, topped with a sandwich cookie for style.
Perfectly designed by Marcel Bonnici of Astonishing Studios to demonstrate all the main mechanisms found in food automation.
THE PERFECT BUILD FOR FOODIES & LEGO® FANS.
Here's how it works
Inserting a Coin The machine accepts ~24mm dia. coins (25¢ USD, 25¢ CAD, €0.50, £0.10, etc) and rejects others via coin return.
Unlocking the Dispensers Upon payment, the mechanism unlocks for the customer to serve themselves pudding through pure mechanics.
Pouring the Ingredients By turning the big cookie, pneumatics dispense milk, gears dispense pudding powder, and a conveyor belt dispenses a cookie—all at once.
Mixing the Pudding The pudding cup slides to a mixing station, where a device mixes the milk and powder together.
Retrieving the Money Hidden in plain sight, the owner can collect their earnings by removing the camouflaged coin tray.
Restocking the Machine The roof comes off in three panels, allowing for easy refills, and there is easy access to the milk.
