Candy Count

Build a Candy Counting Robot with the Raspberry Pi.

7. Further Improvements

As with any project, you always think of improvements on the backside.

I really wanted to add the Grove IR Sensor and a remote control, so I can have the robot say messages out loud to either my kid or the the candy donor. I was also hoping to add a “reboot” button this way so I could remotely reboot the Pi if anything got stuck (it didn’t, but that’s easier than taking the costume apart to reset the Pi.

I also thought about adding a Temperature Sensor to the inside of the costume. We live in Dubai and it gets hot; it would be fun to maybe blast out the temperature once in a while.
