Most of the gadgets we feature here on Gadizmo are products that you can find at a store to take home and play with. Unfortunately, I don’t think the iPhone 4 Halloween costume will be coming to your local WalMart for quite some time and when it does it probably won’t be on the shelf next to the $9.99 Spiderman suits.
The genius behind this costume is a guy named John Savio. This is actually his second iPhone costume. Last year he built a 3GS costume but decided it wasn’t enough, here’s an excerpt from his video description:
“This all started three years ago Reko Rivera and Bobby Hartman created a wearable large iPhone costume with a real 37″ lcd tv. An iPod was attached with a looping video of a real iPhones screen in normal use. Last year with the help of John Savio and John Matthews the team created yet another amazing rendition of the new iPhone 3GS. Savio loved the original idea but wanted to take it to the next level and make it thinner and actually work with user input! With some heavy researching and some solid determination Savio finally found a solution. He managed to modify the software on the iPhone to allow a live dual image output to the large 42″ lcd tv while maintaining the image in landscape mode…”
If you’re anything like me you’re probably sitting in front of your computer wondering how you can convince your wife, girlfriend or mom to let you spend $4,000 on your Halloween costume this year. Sadly I already know what my wife will say, hopefully you have more luck than I do.
