This is not your father’s sleight of hand.

As the holidays approach, people across the country are still wondering what Halloween will be like this year. Some fields have discussed the cancellation of events like faking or treatment, while it seems others are looking to invent new ways to keep the tradition alive.

Luke Keyes still plans to hand out candy to cheaters this year, even though he has to go high-tech for his solutions, KVUE reports. The Austin, Texas resident is said to have built several devices, including a candy delivery robot, to celebrate the holidays.

Keyes spoke to the outlet, saying, “Right now we probably don’t want humans delivering candy by hand, so why don’t we use a robot for that? ”

Aside from the robot, which he says he started working on eight years ago (for reasons unrelated to the trick or the treatment), Keyes also built a candy-firing cannon that fires candy at a social distance of six feet.

“I love cheating,” Keyes said. “For me, I like stuff or candy a little more than Christmas because at Christmas you give gifts to your friends and family; Halloween, you give gifts to everyone. ”

Keyes isn’t the only person looking to give Halloween an upgrade due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fox News previously reported that YouTube channel Wicked Makers designed and built a candy slide, which is exactly what it looks like. One person can stand at the top of the slide and drop candy to someone at a safe distance.

The spooky prop was made by painting PVC pipe with cheesecloth, paint, and skeleton decorations to give it an appropriate look for the Halloween season.
