Background We wondered whether the probability of each roll will be equal to Prof. Izumori advised that I should roll dice thirty-thousand times to investigate dice probability. So I decided to make automatic dice roller.
Commercially Available Dice shaker Fault: Dice come from wrong place Dice doesn’t always roll well
Self-made Dice Roller 1 Fault ： It isn’t suited for rolling many dices at the same time.
Observations I It is essential to roll dice many more times. It is necessary to make a new automatic dice roller.
Experiment III Saikoron wheel for dice rotation ＷＥＢ camera CPU board Small direct-current motor The breadboard for electronic circuits Switching AC/AD adaptor
Thus, it can be expected that the more dots, the higher the frequency of rolling that side, and the less dots, the lower the frequency.
Assignment finish rolling dice 30,000 times and collecting data. improve Saikoron machine as a continuous experimental tool. verify the probability of those dice. examine the variation in the probability after changing the center of gravity of the dice.
