The LEGO Apple iPad Vending Machine


Hey Max! Long time no see! Would you like a free iPad? Uhh, yes please. Okay, just finish this fifteen minute survey, and it will be yours. Alright; fanstastic. You’re very welcome. Do you want a free iPad? Can you please open up? Do you want a free iPad? Are you kidding me? Let’s say the objective of our banknote is
to reach this light sensor. Now, if I turn it on, this is currently receiving
a variable value of about 56 or 55% brightness. I have programmed this so when it reaches
a threshold of 53% or less, it will continue the program, which will begin with this motor
sucking the Euro note in. If you try inserting a euro note, say, worth
five euros, it is going to fall into a hole and fortunately be returned to the customer,
but it did not work in reaching the light sensor because it did not ride along this
purple and pink railing. The same applies for the ten euro (get outta
there), twenty euro and fifty euro. All these euro notes fell down this hole and,
consequently, did not make it far enough to reach this light sensor. But, if you insert a 100 Euro note, it is
sucked up by the wheel. For the second part of the mechanism following
the banknote acception, we have two motors: one per iPad. Now let’s unplug these to limit the clutter. So this motor prevents this door from opening
all the way because this door is hinged at this white piece, which means that anything
higher than it, specifically these gray plates, are going into this beam, which pretty much
means that the door can only open a little bit. So, once the Euro note is sucked in by another
motor, this motor is instructed to rotate about forty-five degrees, therefore no longer
being in the way of this gray plate, letting this rotate open ALL the way, so you can pull
out the first iPad. Here I have isolated the motor that works
specifically on locking the second iPad, so this rotates a gear, which rotates two things. First, it rotates this gear, which is one
of the locking bars in front of the iPad (the left side one), and this gear is also connected
to a wheel that rotates this tread which, ultimately, rotates a gear over here, which
rotates the second bar. So, in summary, this motor simply rotates
the left beam, and, through a system of treads, rotates another beam locking the system. Therefore, when it rotates, both of the beams
come up, which means that we can open this up, because these beams are elevated.

  5. That should be a real thing. Hot glue the whole thing and there ya go an iPad vending machine you can't smash. Smashing it just breaks the iPads too

  6. I just figured out a complete loophole of this stupid dispenser, you can put the 100 dollar note and get the iPad and then you can open the money pocket and just take the note back….
