iGenius! Two iPad 2 units using FaceTime are used to complete a bloody Halloween costume
We all know the benefits of FaceTime, but its usefulness is being served for other purposes this time around – and in this case, it’s used to complete a grotesque looking costume. Essentially, a cutout is made on the front and backside of the costume, where the iPad 2 tablets are duct taped and positioned parallel to one another. From here, they’re connected via Wi-Fi to give onlookers that see-through appearance with the costume – well, as if someone shot a massive hole through his body.
Thinking ahead, he mentions that a Mi-Fi unit can be used if the Wi-Fi connection is too sucky – albeit, we imagine what kind of data usage he’ll rack up after a night of flaunting the costume. Nonetheless, you can still get in a good round of Angry Birds if you really wanted to kill some time. Thinking about it more, we wonder if anyone else out there can top this costume?

Creative, but I hope he has Sprint with unlimited data or access to wifi at whoever's house he's going to, cause that's gonna rock his data

He's got a Verizon MiFi in his pocket, and from the looks of it it looks like it's an older one so he probably has unlimited data.

Unless he found a way to activate it on an old verizon unlimited plan (buying retail and activating on plan himself). Verizon had switched to tiered Data before the Mifi came out.

I wonder if there was a way to turn the brightness down on facetime?
Awesome costume idea though, now if only more people had two iPad's and a mifi device haha :D

Well now, here I thought I was going to look awesome as a vampire hunter with my wide brimmed hat, trenchcoat, and crossbow (with tie down holster and airsoft Colt .45 as backup).
I mean, I don't dress like that EVERY day anyway, so it's still technically a costume...

So because he can waste 2K on a Halloween costume he's a genius?
