This is a project that I’m doing with Rita.
The idea for this project is a “Trick or Treat” vending machine. Users can push a button, then they will either be given a “trick”, which is some sort of scary toy or a “treat”, which is a candy bar. The decision is completely random. There will be animations showing on the screen to hype up the user before receiving the gift.
The vending machine itself will involve a small tablet computer as the screen and processor of the imaging (basically the brains). The computer will then be connected to a microcontroller which will detect the trigger of the button and also rotate the motors that will rotate the vending machine coils.
