I would use a scale for counting. Actually there exist "counting scales" for exactly this purpose.

And how does that involve an arduino?  ;D

Commercial stuff is boring. You know you always want to make your own. Especially if it's better/has a load more processing power than it needs cos it's running on an arduino...



Sort them by color in advance. As I understood it the issue is counting all the chips and not sorting them by color.

Sort them by color in advance

If you've sorted them by colour, you've counted them, surely?
What's the point of weighing?
Some people are like Slinkies.

Not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.


If you sort them by colour, use a coin board - or whatever that stuff is called in English. Those are very easy to make with a little wood and a drill and some wood glue. An Arduino doesn't improve on that.

The project becomes interesting only if the sorting is also done electrically. Double fun if you add a few kicker motors to drop the coins into the right colour bin.
