Turn that boring Halloween candy bowl you have sitting around the house into an interactive smart device.

Halloween is over, but with Google Home and Android Things you can extend the festivities at least until the end of the year, because let's face it, there's usually enough left over candy to last that long. With just about every object we know and love getting the "smart" treatment, store all those extra goodies in some Halloween bowls powered by Google Home and a Raspberry Pi running Android Things.

The result is a simple question of whether you want a trick or a treat. Based on your response, one of the bowls will open up allowing you to relive your childhood without visiting a stranger's house. Check the video below to see the bowls in action.

When you think about it, a smart Halloween bowl could come in handy next year for people who won't be at home but still want to provide candy or those who don't want to physically pass out treats. Either way, it's definitely sure to grab some attention wherever you choose to display it.

Don't forget, there's still some time left to submit your entry for the ModMy Pumpkin contest which ends on November 15th. The rules require an actual pumpkin to be used, but if you're well versed in programming, engineering, and design, you could take the pumpkin carving game to the next level with Google Home. Remember to use the hashtag #ModMyPumpkin in order to be entered into the challenge if sharing via Twitter or Instagram. If sharing on YouTube, include #ModMyPumpkin in the title of your video.

Drop a comment below and let us know how your pumpkin is coming along.
