Happy Halloween… I’m pretty sure I can hand out candy from a nice, COVID safe, 2m distance now! 5m? 6? Well, that’s safe, too,I guess.
The scary part is that I know students who could do it faster, shoot more accurately and fit it all into a VEX legal box, too… And would probably add costume adjusted face recognition and a full autoloader to make sure everyone gets their fair share of candy!
Stay safe and be smart this weekend, everyone… And watch out for flying candy if you’re in Vancouver!
Thanks for the nice comments… Vancouver, BC, and “why not” to adding a sling to make it a trebuchet. Having built a few trebuchets in the past, though, they will take more effort to “dial in” than a catapult does… more moving parts=more complexity.
