Talk about creativity: chocolate giant Reese's just announced the unleashing of a pretty cool robot that will roam neighborhood streets to dispense free peanut butter cups. The best part? The entire ordeal will be hands-free.
"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?
No word yet on where the movable door is set to land, but you can actually submit a neighborhood request on Instagram, using the hashtag #ReesesDoor. Talk about a socially distanced
