iGenius! Two iPad 2 units using FaceTime are used to complete a bloody Halloween costume

iGenius! Two iPad 2 units using FaceTime are used to complete a bloody Halloween costume
Oh the wonders of what some ingenious thinking can produce, especially when it’s Halloween, as one individual managed to complement his outfit by integrating two iPad 2 tablets together to come up with something that’ll be sure to catch some eyes.

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...
