    This is very cool. I am curious to know a bit more about the dispensing mechanism. I wanted to do something similar but I eventually gave up and hacked one of those automatic candy dispensing machines to do my work for me. One thing specifically I'm curious about is going from the circular motion of the servo to the linear motion of the pusher thingy.

    Looks like a great project.. The only thing lacking is quality control on the user responses, so that means that we have to build MORE of these things, and the function of the second kiosk will be to reward people for spending time judging and rating the responses given at the first kiosk. Of course, this would have to be in real-time, so you could only reward the FIRST person if their ad was deemed acceptable.. :-)

    .. The other comment would be that I will be on the lookout for the arduino shield that can detect whether my son's room is clean. That way, I can reward him with a piece of candy only after his chores are done! :-)
