Kye nudged me to share our candy chute here, I should have thought of it on Halloween!
This was our solution for social distancing, there were three homes with chutes in our neighborhood, and everyone said our was the coolest
3D printed “Drago-Rex” head https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:330859
Robbed parts: spine from a snake, and the wings from a bat
Raspberry Pi + USB sound card (can’t use built in sound w/ WS2812Bs)
WS2812B strips (6 nodes in eyes + 6 in roof of mouth)
Simple button near mouth of chute, we would just press it when we sent the candy through
