Hate Yellow Skittles? This Contraption Sorts Your Candy by Color

I'm not sure what it is about red skittles that are so good, or what it is about the yellow ones that I'm averse to. Or why blue M&Ms seem to taste much better than the brown ones. Engineer and artist Brian Egenriether likely had these same deep thoughts when he invented the appliance that certainly every household needs: the Skittles Sorting Machine. Tinkering around in his lab for about five weekends straight, he created this genius device that uses a sensor to detect colors and then sorts them, at a rate of about 37 Skittles per minute.
