Robot Inspiration Series #16: Dispensing Machine

This week's inspiration is to design a robotic candy or soda dispenser (or a whatever-you-want-dispenser). Can you make a robot that holds your candy/soda/snacks and dispenses them on demand? Such a robot can be as simple as a container with a door on it, or as complicated as something that requires coins or a password/secure card and drops items one-by-one onto an output tray while keeping the rest protected.

And of course, after accomplishing such an engineering feat, surely your mom wouldn't mind donating some... "contents"... for your robot, right? :)
