"This Halloween is unlike any other, so we’ve upped the ante on creativity as a result," Allen Dark, Reese’s senior brand manager, said in a press release announcing the news. "A robotic Reese’s dispensing door is just what the world needs right now!"

Officially named Reese's Trick-or-Treat Door, the moving robot is powered by three motors that can be directed by a remote control up to 5,000 feet away—which means that other humans don't even have to be nearby for the gimmick to work. All you have to do to activate the 9-foot door is say "trick or treat." Once you do that, the built-in Bluetooth-enabled speaker will prompt the system to dish out a king size Reese's candy bar. Also expect a Halloween soundtrack to blast from the speakers while the door is rolling around. How cool does that sound?
