Trick-or-Treat Projects for #electronichalloween

Here are a few good projects to interact with the trick-or-treaters coming to your house this year.  Whether it is a hard-core candy delivery system, or a way to scare those who dare walk on your front step to ring the doorbell, these should give you some good inspiration.

Automatic Halloween Candy Dispenser

When trick-or-treaters show up at my house they can text, call, or tweet a code displayed on an LCD screen to get their Halloween candy. They can also push the Big Red button.

Once the candy request is made a few “special” effects are triggered by X10 modules. A low laying fog machine is activated and lights turn on while the candy shoots down from my front deck on the second floor.
