Problem Statement

Background: The production of intermediate colors using a combination of primary colors is an important phenomenon for children to learn about. It is also desirable for children to be exposed to robotics/mechatronics at an early age. One machine could address both of these goals. Product: A device with three colored liquids or paints (red, yellow and blue) and a way to select a color from the color wheel. The device automatically dispenses the correct amounts of each colored liquid or paint into one container to produce the desired color. The electromechanical components should be easy to see, but shielded enough to maintain safety.
