Trick-or-treating goes high tech for Charlotte family
A Charlotte family isn't let the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to trick-or-treating. They've created a self-sanitizing "TransylVending" machine to dispense candy.
this year, the pandemic playing a major role on Halloween. But this family is changing the narrative. Our family wanted to make sure that Halloween was gonna happen. The meats creating a contact list dispensary in front of the yard for kids to still grab their favorite Candies. But by phone, we've built a Frankenstein themed automatic candy dispensary. It's called the Transit Vending Machine. Here's how it works. All you do is drive up and text this phone number next to the machine for groups of four. They will. Then, uh, he asked for a code that you'll find in the window in here that changes every night. Then you'll receive a text asking how many people are in your group so the machine will dispense the proper amount of candy bars. Do that step in front of the machine, and it goes through a sequence. Uh, Thio actually distribute the candy to you once you collect the candy from the bowl. The trans vending machine self sanitized for the next trick or treater while is preparing underneath this dome, we're using UV C light to kill any germs to sanitize things. The plan took a month to bring to reality. We've reused some props from the past, and then we've created some new elements, like the whole candy dispensary. But the meats hope it will make for a sweet yet safe Govind Halloween. We're running this all week through Halloween from 7. 30 to 9:30 p.m. Hopefully three community finds. This is fun as we did, uh, you know, to put it together, Ruby Durham, WCNC, Charlotte.
