Have you thought about how you’re going to hand out candy this Halloween? Most people just fill a regular bowl with goodies (we prefer bowls like this), but that ain’t festive at all!
If you want to truly get into the spirit of Halloween, try making Andrew Terranova’s animatronic skull candy jar. Andrew took a boring plastic skull and added a some electronics—including sound effects, LED lights and a motion sensor. When a trick-or-treater approaches the skull and trips the sensor, the skull’s eyes change from blue to red, and in a creepy, haunting voice it says, “Take one!” Then the top of the skull pops open, revealing a cranium packed with candy!
See the skull in action after the break..
