We go to a lot of hackathons and collect cool stickers for our laptops, so we thought it would be a cool idea to make a vending machine to sell stickers.

What it does

You can either go online to our web app, place your order, or you can put in change to select your sticker.

How we built it

We used an Intel Edison to wire up an LCD Screen, a coin slot machine, a bunch of servos, which communicates to our server using websockets, which we can use in our web app.

Challenges we ran into

Simple to advanced mechanics, wiring is challenging for software engineers, the coin slot machine was rather difficult to work with and had poor documentation.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Getting it to work. You can purchase from our live web app, right now.

What we learned

Hardware is fun and we all learned about different electrical components.

What's next for Sticker Shop

We launch our 4 billion dollar IPO
