A project log for Halloween Candy Mortar

Candy in a 35mm film container is launched towards a trick-or-treater when they step on a foot pedal 50 feet away from the launcher.

Posted a video of some launches


Began working on an ESP32 controlled LED sign that tells the next trick-or-treater when they can  move forward to use the launcher. Picture something like two  EXIT signs stacked on top of each other, one saying LAUNCH and the other saying WAIT. Controlled by an phone app.

Circuit is built, need to work on the app and then then the actual box to hold it.
