I’m currently working on a Sorting Factory, complete with LEGO Mindstorms NXT Forklift Truck and Bin Emptying Robot. Part of a larger project I’m currently working on (partly visible in the upper-left corner of photographs). The Forklift is used to deliver full Bins of balls to be emptied by the Bin Emptying Machine, and then the empty bin is taken away, back to the processing facility.

It sorts out the balls by colour and delivers it to the appropriate colour maker along the conveyor belt, before rolling down to elevator which lifts the balls back to the ball bin to start again. This version sorts 6 colours but is capable of sorting 10+ coloured ball with ease. The software that runs the contraption was written in NXC (Not eXactly C) which is available free from BricxCC.
