The lead up to Halloween is one of the best times of the year, with spooky parties, scary movies, and copious amounts of cheap candy in stores. But Halloween night, when you’re constantly running to the door to give away your coveted candy stocks, is less enjoyable. So why not build a Lego robot to deal with trick-or-treaters instead?
Jason Allemann’s latest creation is a miniature candy bar factory that delivers treats, vending machine style, giving the kids roaming the neighbourhood in search of candy the luxury of picking their own bar, rather than lumping whatever piece of chocolate you happen to dig out of your Halloween sack first. Adorned with a spooky skeleton hand and a giant Lego spider to test the mettle of all who approach the machine for free chocolate, it’s a fun way to let the kids help themselves, but not exactly something you can leave on your front porch doling out candy while you head to bed – unless your okay with all of your candy and expensive Lego Mindstorms all disappearing.
