    As noted by Gizmodo, one NASA engineer has used the iPad 2's FaceTime video conferencing feature to his advantage when creating a Halloween costume:
    The two video conferenced iPads gives the impression of a gaping hole in the middle of his torso.

    Wow... that's really great.

    But I guess he needs a decent WiFi connection to achieve that!

    Or you could just cut a real hole in your body. It'd be a lot cheaper, not to mention more realistic.

    Hahaha that's great. I'm guessing it might look better in-person, cuz the camera recording the screens makes a lot of glare

    Haha, agreed. That totally made the otherwise kinda boring video worth it. (Cool idea. But the video itself was pretty meh, until the end.)

    How hard would it be to at least line up the entrance and exit holes?

    If the screens were less brighter, it'd make for a pretty realistic "hole."

    But then the illusion wouldn't work as the iPad camera is not in the middle of the iPad - the iPad camera on the rear iPad has to be in the same position as the middle of the screen on the front iPad, so the two iPads have to be offset.

    meh, I thought of this as well but that would involve spending another $500 on a second iPad I don't need or borrowing someone's who probably wouldn't be willing to lend it...

    Good idea but it looks pretty poor in action. Maybe he should have dimmed the screen or used the ambient lighting feature, or used something with an OLED display and fixed 60fps camera? (does such a thing even exist? With a big enough display I mean)

    Ben must be a PC user whereas this other just strapped a couple iPads to his chest and done. Plus it's 2 way and plays angry birds.

    That is very cool! I would love to try it out. But... there are two things I see wrong with this:

    1. You need 2 iPad 2s
    2. You need 2 iPads you are willing to get messed up. I guess it would depend on the type of party but I would be a little worried the iPads would get messed up.
