Two iPads put a hole through man's wallet stomach

Halloween fancy dress fans, eat your heart out

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

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. ®
