This is an intelligent coin box which is used to show the current money amount in the box. I used a candy box, a LED display and eight infrared emitter and detector pairs to achieve this coin box. Eight infrared pairs are put on the sides of eight holes that represents to eight different kinds of coins to detect the thrown coins. But each coin should be dropped into the correct hole to ensure the LED display on the candy box could show the correct value.
