So, here it is, almost time for Halloween Party weekend and you don’t have a costume?
What to do, what to do, eh? Well, if you have a t-shirt that you’re willing to sacrifice and a modicum of creative ability, and an iPhone or iPad or Android device, then you may be in luck. Gizmodo covered a buy last year who used a pair of iPads to make a costume which seemed like he had a hole in his chest. That was pretty awesome. Well, after spending some time working on some Mars Rover project you may have heard about, that guy, Mark Rober, is back with a slightly less expensive alternative. Rober and his team at DigitalDudz have come up with a pretty amazing app that lets you make a creative costume pretty cheap. In fact, the app itself is free and, basically, consists of some pretty cool and creepy animations that you can combine with an old t-shirt, or one of the custom ones that they sell relatively cheap, to make a pretty cool costume.
The basic app is pretty amazing, but it does have “upgrades” which will cost a couple bucks more and, I have to admit, the t-shirts that they sell at DigitalDudz are better than anything I can whip up, even if I wasn’t in a hurry, but, hey, beggars can’t be choosers at this late date.
Anyway, it is a cool app and a cool idea. Maybe for next year for me, though.
But, hey, it’s Friday, so why not check it out! (And, no, I don’t get any money for those links. I just liked it, so I linked it.)
