If You Have Two iPad 2s, Here's an Easy Halloween Costume That'll Blow Everyone Away

This reader, Mark, is a pretty bright guy—he's literally a rocket scientist, working at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., where he's spent six years helping to design the Mars Science Laboratory launching next month. Last night, Mark went to a Halloween party with this twin iPad rig. Start up a FaceTime video chat, add a torn sweatshirt, fake blood and, of course, duct tape, and it looks like you've blown a hole clean through yourself.

Access to two iPad 2s make this a bit of an expensive costume, but if you already have one and maybe can borrow another from a pal, you're good. Who knows, will the Apple store rent those out for Halloween?

Part of me thinks that you could get a similar effect by just using a couple of mirrors.
