Sweet Shoot
 

Made for Wherther's pop-up shop that that travels around the UK and still does. The public select one of six sweets and by pulling a ring they slide down the helter skelter into their bowl. The machine was completely mechanical with no electrics and the hardest part was to design a gate mechaniism (below) that would deliver a certain quantity, not get jammed, by incredibly durable, as it is the public operating this, yet not damage the sweet.

This was made for Hot Pickle for their client Wherther's Original. It was a nice prop to make but the guilt I felt from promoting sweets promted me to give 3% of my fee to Diabetes UK
