Motorized Screw Organizer With Jam Jars: the Caroustore
I suggest to you a practical and original system to find your hardware (screws, nails, bolts …): a carousel of 32 jam jar, motorized with a wiper motor.
Finding a piece becomes quick because a sample of each piece is visible in a numbered rack.
Working: the desired part is marked on the display, the corresponding button is pressed, the system rotates in the shortest direction, slowed down, stops, the light comes on for 10 seconds and the parts can be taken by unscrewing jar of its lid.

Step 1: Studies and Plans
The jars being suspended by their lids, they are on a rotating axis to always have the head up.
So I started by doing a simulation with the software Physion, then a “model” cardboard to check that the jars would not touch during the rotation.
