Every year, Halloween sneaks up on some of us and we're left to scramble for a last minute costume. This year, if you have a mobile device you can pull together a high tech costume that's sure to be the talk of the neighborhood.


What happens when you combine a smartphone app, a clever t-shirt and a former NASA engineer? A really cool, and kinda freaky, Halloween costume called Digital Dudz. First you buy a t-shirt from morphsuits.com. Then you download the free iPhone and Android app, Digital Dudz.

From the app, you can choose from video of eyeballs, beating hearts, guts, worms, you name it… all to animate the graphic on the t-shirt. You see, each shirt has a hidden pocket inside to secure your phone. A little tech, a little gore...and you've got a perfect last minute costume to impress fellow trick-or-treaters.

If you're really stuck in need of a last minute Halloween costume, download the 1.99 Masketeer app onto your iPad. Each of the 12 scary masks makes a scream, says "trick or treat" and even says "thank you." Hey, who said gruesome and polite were mutually exclusive? Hold the iPad up to your face, and presto - instant costume.

Have a happy Halloween...and just remember to charge your phone or tablet's batteries!
