Austin Man Perfecting Socially Distanced Trick-or-Treating Tries Out Drone Delivery

A husband and wife in Austin, Texas, have devised ingenious ways to deliver candy to children on Halloween without coming into close contact as a precaution to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Luke Keyes, a software engineer, said he has been toying with several ideas this year, including a “candy cannon,” a robot delivery system and, as seen in this clip, a drone.

Keyes said he and his wife, Michele Benedisuk, “really love” Halloween, adding that her family would host a “haunted garage” experience each year.

They “were torn” about what to do this Halloween in light of the pandemic. They ultimately decided not to hold a haunted garage and instead created a video series demonstrating socially distanced trick-or-treating methods. Credit: Luke Keyes via Storyful
