Two iPads put a hole through man's wallet stomach

Halloween fancy dress fans, eat your heart out

Reducing security risks from open source software

As technology evolves, so does the potential for increasingly scary and horrific looks this Halloween. Check this guy out for a prime example.

By taping a pair of iPad 2s to his body - one on his chest, the other on his back - Mark Rober managed to create the gaping stomach effect famously bestowed upon Goldie Hawn in Death Becomes Her, Technabob reports.

Not everyone has a couple of iPads lying around, or friends willing to lend theirs for such a use, but it's a novel idea nonetheless and despite Rober spending his days as a rocket scientist, this technique is an easy feat to pull off.

A Wi-Fi connection is all that is needed, and a simple FaceTime conversation between the two devices does the rest. Finally, a little fake blood and thespian antics are all that remains to turn this idea into a costume guaranteed to spook the crowds - it's unlikely to scare away any potential muggers, though. ®
