The Sorting Machine from RedPower 2 allows for the automatic sorting of items though Pneumatic Tubes by checking items it receives against its internal list of items, which are color-coded by row. It then colors the item and sends it on its way, where it will prefer to flow into tubes that have been painted the same color. Sorting Machines are powered by Blutricity.
