The "Gumball PC"
January 15, 2005
Hubba Bubba! Now here's a project you can really sink your teeth into.... You could say Richard E. Kohlman has a taste for the sweet things in life. Like a buffer overflow, his enthusiasm for old candy vending machines bubbled over into his computer consciousness. To double his pleasure, he built this lip smacking platform around an MII 10000 Mini-ITX board. After pulling together a whole pack of peripherals, Richard turned his restored gumball machine into a one of a kind computer confectionery dispenser. It's got all the fruit flavored sweetness of a real gumball machine, but with only half the noise of a typical PC - chew on that! Surely, 4 out of 5 dentists would agree.
