The bowl has a scale built in. Calibrate it by putting one
piece of candy in and pushing
the button. It weighs the one piece. Then pour the whole
bag in and it's ready.
Say each piece is one ounce, if the bowl lightens by 5
ounces or so, the system knows somebody's grabbed a
a blood curdling scream is emitted from the
speaker and a witches voice says "I SAID ONLY ONE!!".
Motion sensors can activate the unit to say "Welcome my
pretty, please take only one piece!" then do the scream
thing for the candy hogs.
As for the problem with kids grabbing more just to hear
scream? Hey, I can't solve all the problems of the world.
||That's when you invoke the trap door.
||I did a "Screaming Candy Dish" years and years ago here. It
was for an office candy dish that screams when people took
much candy. I believe it may have slapped your hand, too.
||Great idea for Halloween too. Great half-brains think alike.

Dish thingy, I would prolly have about 500 really silly
ideas, and perhaps one or two doable ones."
