    TAMPA, FLA., John Savio (Center), Abigail Gardner (Featured as Apple Employee) This year they're back at it again. John Savio and Reko Rivera went their separate ways. John created the upgraded rendition of the iPhone 4 featured here at 10x to scale, complete with a 40" LED LCD Panel, a Jailbroken iPhone 4, VGA out from the iPohone, LED Back Camera Light, weighs roughly 75 lbs and uses a mini 12v Battery with 2+ hours of battery life. The costume took a total of 3 days / 40 hours to complete.

    BACKSTORY -- 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. Reko originally came up with the idea and really pushed to see his vision come to life two years ago. This year John Savio and Reko Rivera embarked on different projects. John stuck with his love of apple products and Reko ventured off to explore his love of DJ'ing with a mobile DJ setup.

    haha...nice job. Although I have this sneaking suspicion that you'll get beaten down and have both your TV and iPhone stolen.

    Dude has a Segway......don't think the added expense of an LED TV was a problem here.

    Power consumption? Specs said it had a small 12v battery. Could that be converted to power the screen, even for a short time?

    Im sure the reduced weight was also a good reason to stick with an led tv.

    Bonus points if you have a sticker of MC Hammer on the side pointing at the band with a speech bubble "Can't Touch This"

    Cool idea, but would probably suck to use the bathroom, dance, and try to sit. :p Oh and read emails and texts, since everyone can also read it.

    I wish I didn't have to worry about $$$... Didn't the guy that invented the Segway died a few months back when he went w/ an all terrain one over a steep hill and fell in his property?

    I don't know, maybe? most pics he has it plugged in....

    I though so too, also the less heat and power, but the difference in price for a LED vs a normal LCD is still a lot (especially for a costume that might get damage), at least for me...

    LMAO :D

    That thing probably works great for 2 minutes (if that) until the battery powering the television dies.

    The costume gets about 2 hours per battery. I have a total of three batteries. The segway was purchased used for $1200. :)

    Led Tvs

    LED tvs are cheap now days people they just recently dropped in price dramatically An Led 40 inch is around 800 bucks not that expensive for a nice sized FLAT tv.

    It's plugged in for only some of the photos. I had a contest at night and didn't want to waste battery life.
