A vending machine is an automated machine that provides items such as snacks, beverages, cigarettes and lottery tickets to consumers after money, a credit card, or specially designed card is inserted into the machine. The first modern vending machines were developed in England in the early 1880s and dispensed postcards. Vending machines exist in many countries, and in more recent times, specialized vending machines that provide less common products compared to traditional vending machine items have been created. See more on link provided https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vending_machine Vending machines are one of the first things visitors see when they arrive in Japan. Colorful, convenient and almost anything that can be sold in one. There is a wide variety of machines. From fully digital drink machines to the unusual vending machine like canned hot ramen and bread-in-a-can in Akihabara, we tour Japan to check them all out. The why and how of vending machines.

My final project is a Vending Robot that dispenses water, soda and four different packed snacks.The choice for my final project was influenced by my training background and the general lack of vending machines in my country. As noticed the name of my final project is Vending Machine Mashinani the word mashinani is a swahili word meaning "at the roots".
It might be that
sudo apt-get install git
sudois not the way to go and you need to change your user to
rootbefore you can install software. If so, run the following and repeat the command above.
On Mac OS X I would suggest you to use a package manager, such as Homebrew. With Homebrew installed, run the following command. brew install git If you do not want to install some weird package managers and what not, feel free to consult alternative options on Git website. I have no direct experience with Windows 10, but I assume that you can use the Linux way of installation if you enable the Developer Mode.

Change the currentitialized empty Git repository in /.../my-git-project/.git/ You should create a README.md file for describing your project. The .md extension means that it should be recognised as a Markdown file. It is a conventional way among programmers to communicate what the project is about. touch README.md Your project file tree should look as follows now. my-git-project └── README.md Open README.md in your favorite text editor. I use Sublime Text and I usually open the whole project by issuing the following command. Then, double-click on README.md subl . Add some introductory content there. I try to be honest at all times. # My Git Project This is a Git repository to explain basics of Git. Save the file and return to the Terminal interface. Type the following command. git status This is an important command to remember as it will let you see the current status of your Git repository. Now it will print out a message that there is a file that is not tracked by the Git system. Untracked files: (use "git add
commit c299ff48adf40a8a23c8bafbbeb6aea92923df44,these are unique commit identifiers. We can use them to roll back to a certain version in the project history. The rest should be self-explanatory. The following is a simple workflow that you can use to version your project. I will explain more features in the GitLab part of this page. 1. Make a change (add or edit a file) 2. Use
git statusto see changes 3. Use
git add filenameto add specific file you want to commit 4. Use
git commit -m 'Your commit message'to add changes to Git history 5. Repeat Lastly you need to update the remote part (the server) with content you accumulated locally. For that you use the
git pushcommand. A screenshot below (I avoid using screenshots in this section since a lot can be done by showing plain code, but here is one real screenshot). I also added my-git-project to my Fab Academy GitLab account.
During this week we will cover computer drawing skills and computer drawing aids .We will learning about different 3D and 3D drawing tools and environments to be used for digital fabrication. You can see the full list of tools discussed on the Fab Academy Computer-Aided Design page.
The assignment for the third week is to use one or more of these tools to design a possible final project. The project of mine is Vending_Machine Mashinani. I will design a structure of the Vending Vending_Machine Mashinani using a computer Aided Design tool called

Input Devices Observe your surroundings This week, I took a look at input devices, i.e. sensors which enables my boards to detect properties of their environment. Together with the next week, I'm able to construct devices that can act on, observe, and react to their surroundings. That's very exciting, because it enables so much possibilities! overflow sensors and empty sensors
