Apple’s iPad is touching an increasing number of people’s lives in an increasing number of ways, including how they go about planning a Halloween costume.
If you are a mechanical engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, the iPad is the natural source of inspiration.
And what could be more ghoulish than a costume that makes it look like a hole has been blown clean through your chest?
This is the effect Mark Rober created using a pair of iPad 2s and the FaceTime chat application, according Wired.com.
Rober shows off the result on his YouTube channel. “Basically you start a FaceTime chat between the iPads and then tape one to your front and one to your back,” he writes. “Add a little red paint and you’re good to go.”
