Trick or Treat Vending Machine Project Concept

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.

Mockup of the project

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.
