Newton’s Apple / Fruits container

Newton’s Apple
Newton’s Apple

Newton was hit by an apple, but also brainstormed the gravitation. Unlike normal fruit plate, this is a fruit container on the wall. Fruits are to be filled inside of the erect pipe container, with infrared sensor at bottom. It allows one fruit to fall automatically if you place your hand at bottom of the pipe. The white bottom was fixed on the wall, and the body can rotate in circles from its bottom. When filling, you can rotate the pipe close to horizontal so the fruits can roll in nice and easy. Multiple “Newton’s Apple” were placed on the wall, with each filled in different fruits, also worked as a wall decoration.
