Two iPad 2’s make for one cool Halloween Costume

Still haven’t decided what or who to dress as for that Halloween party? Well if you have two iPad 2’s laying around and some fake blood, you can impress your friends by making it appear as though there’s a gaping hole in your torso. Mark Rober, a Mechanical Engineer for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, makes use of the iPad 2s’ cameras and FaceTime to create this neat effect:

a relatively simple Halloween costume using 2 iPad2s to make it look like you have a huge hole in your torso. You’ll also need a MiFi hotspot (if you don’t have a WiFi network available where you want to use the costume). Basically you start a FaceTime chat between the iPads and then tape one to your front and one to your back. Add a little red paint and you’re good to go. It’s supposed to look like you have a gaping hole in your torso. If you spend more time than I did on the blood and the flesh part and lining up the iPads it could look pretty cool

This has got to be one of coolest (and geekiest) Halloween costumes ever.
