Robotics Monday: Sorting Balls by Color

The NXT 2.0's color sensor and disturbingly large quantity of Bionicle zamor spheres makes the kit perfectly suited for machine guns and machines that sort balls by color. The builder I'm featuring today decided to try a few ball-sorter designs from the Internet and a few original designs. You can see four of Robin Newman’s designs at the link above, along with videos, code, building instructions, and information about what sets and parts you would need to build each version.

I know we're already running late, but in celebration of National Robotics Week in the US, we will be featuring additional robot-themed models this week.
