Introduction: Coin Operated Knex Gum Ball Machine!

About: Hi im kevin! i make stuff =] Kthanksbye =D
I BUILT THIS FOR THE I MADE IT CONTEST!! As you can see i posted it the day of the deadline :)

This is my new creation! It is coin operated and designed for quarters.
If you drop in a penny, nickle or dime, it will just take your coin. :)
For every quarter, one gumball is dispensed.

Please read:
I also built lock and key mechanism for safely storing the collected change.
Unfortunately I didn't have enough knex to finish the rest of it :((
I ran out of green rods and 3D connectors.

So i am left with a random lock and key system with no way to attach it to the bottom of the machine.
I Hope the Coin Operated Gumball machine alone is enough :)

    Thats totally false. In the other video you can see better that you don't introduce the quarter. It is just a mechanism that makes that always you turnthat thing, a gumball cames out.

    We have a gumball dispenser before we have a K'nex dispenser. -_-
    Good job, though. Now, do you suppose you could make one large dispenser for all the different connectors and rods? It'd be kind of strange to store K'nex in your K'nex but I've been waiting for someone to try this out for as long as I can remember.
    And you don't by chance airsoft, do you? I've also been looking for someone to build a decent speedloader for even longer.
