nice! :D


Je parle un peu de français. Should the 1* rater not see this, you should have the first project to have 5 stars ***** (Which is the way I'm rating it). Good job.


This is very interesting! You're right; I would have never thought of this. Rating: ****


I have the slightest feeling Mr. 1* rater is footballgator protesting over the new site.


Apparently I don't check up on Mindstorms Community enough. Who/What is this lamebrain referred to as 1 Star Rater?


This is something completely different from the rest of outoftheboxes so far! Very interesting project. Strars complètes!


Wow! Very cool! Congrats on winning the Out of the Box challenge!

I never saw this combination before, so I made it with an EV3 education set. I intend to present it for the "out of the box" challenge. At the beginning, the machine looks at the articles on the conveyor belt thanks to the color of each article. Meanwhile it displays the name of the different articles on the screen with their price and the total amount. The buyer puts a beam after all his things to stop the conveyor belt. He can then put coins that the machine recognizes thanks to their size. He repeats these actions until the total amount is reached. I added some sound effects while scanning articles or confirming the purchase. It remains only to make a machine which gives the buyer his change or which detects if someone pass without pay (and shoots at him in that case ;-)) but I can't do that with only one set :-(. I'm french, so the text is in french and the devise is €.
