Mobile cases

There's plenty of spook-scrawled cases out there for most mobile devices, but those bobbing for Apples this Halloween undoubtedly have the wider choice.

These glow-in-the-dark cases from Slickwraps are made from photoluminescent vinyl that will apparently glow for hours and can be recharged in minutes. There are versions for older iPhone models too and the fact they're not covered in pumpkins or ghost-related design schemes, means they can be used all year round without their owner looking like a goth.

Griffin has recently announced some limited edition Halloween cases for iPod Touches too, which are rather cute with cartoony caricatures. Bright and cheerful with a ghoulish twist.

Plasma Lights

Frightening lighting is what Halloween is all about, and from strobes to those light-up balloon thingamajigs, the market is flooded with spine-chilling glowers.

This plasma ball from Maplin fits the bill and responds to touch as well as voice and music. Unless you have a phobia of anything skull-shaped, it's unlikely to cause many scares, but candle lit pumpkins are so last century and this'll make any display look über cool.
