Kids love Halloween because they get to dress up, act like a monster, and be rewarded with free candy. Then you become an adult, and suddenly have to deal with little monsters demanding free sweets. Halloween is suddenly less fun, unless you build a Lego robot to deal with trick-or-treaters.

Jason Allemann of JK Brickworksā€™ latest creation is this Halloween Candy Thrower (you can build your own with the plans available here) that hurls tiny Snickers, Mars, and Reeseā€™s peanut butter cups at anyone who walks up and triggers its motion sensor. You donā€™t even need to say ā€œtrick or treatā€ to be rewarded with candy, which feels a bit like cheating to all of us who grew up having to mutter that free candy password.
