Creative Halloween costume uses two iPads to create realistic gunshot effect

Tue, Nov 1, 2011


Now here’s some Halloween creativity we can get behind. What better way to accurately and safely mimic a gunshot wound to the body than to use two iPads to create the illusion of being able to see through one’s torso.

In the video below, you can see that this fellow positioned one iPad on his stomach and one on his back. He then initiated a Facetime chat between the two devices so that it would appear, on first glance, that one could actually see through the body and out the other side. Add in a little bit of fake blood and guts for added effect and wallah! You’re ready to scare people high-tech style.

As a parting shot, the costume above was the brainchild of NASA Mechanical Engineer Mark Rober.
