Our device is a suitably high resolution honeycomb lattice capable of holding a typical circular fruit, and baskets or buckets of said fruits, perhaps previously color sorted. The overall display looks more or less as a fruit farm stand would look like.

Armed with one or more dexterous robot arms, a camera, and software able to detect colors, when presented with a desired image, our Fruit Punch Cart assembles the image on the honeycomb lattice by selecting the appropriately colored fruits and placing them in the appropriate pixel location.

       I think it's a marker of the hb that there's two normal ways of reading the title, I assumed it was a third, and the idea is actually a fourth.

       [+] hoping this could be combined somehow with a fruit machine (AKA "one armed bandit").
