This project resembles a branch of mechanical engineering which is robotics. This robot can assemble the pieces of a spinner top according to colour and it also spins it. For this project, you will need:

  • Lego Mindstorms EV3 Home Edition
  • Lego Mindstorms EV3 Core Set
  • Lego Mindstorms EV3 Expansion Set
  • Lego Mindstorms Education EV3 Software

The whole project contains two bricks, four large motors, two medium motors, two push buttons and two colour sensors (all these come with the Lego Mindstorms Sets). The EV3 Spinner Factory took me about four to five days to build and program. Also, I learnt how to program robots and give orders to sensors. The person who inspired me to build this machine is my dad and I really thank him for his help and support. On top of this, I also built a smart snake and elephant. Other than the Lego Mindstorm Robots, I worked with many projects with the Arduino Uno board, the Raspberry Pie Board and the Breadboard.
