In this follow-up, I’ll show you the (mostly) finished project, talk about what I used, what I learned along the way, and just how much fun it is to have a robot that throws candy bars with unwavering accuracy and consistency.

It seems this Halloween we once again have additional considerations to take into account. I'm focusing on handing out candy to trick-or-treaters while maintaining proper social distancing.
Some people have a hard time getting a good night's sleep in a strange bed, but nobody wants to wake up exhausted when they're on traveling. I decided to see if I could remedy this issue with a few SparkFun parts and a fast 3D print.
My friend's young son's latest obsession became my latest project, with a salvaged stepper motor, a couple of servos, and a bit of ingenuity.
Buttons and switches are some of the basic blocks of a project and we have plenty to offer, as well as some interesting circuits to use them on!
