We all know that Apple’s technology has spurred changes across a number of different industry, but now it seems even Halloween costumes have been affected.

As the video below explains, a very unique costume has been put together using two iPads to simuilate a hole in the torso which lets people see right the outfit as if it were a real hole.

The outfit was created by a mechanical engineer at NASA, according to Wired, who connected two iPads using FaceTime, with each one displaying the image from the front-view camera on the other – while an in-pocket MiFi is recommend in case the party WiFi is poor.

The result is pure magic, a very clever illusion.

Will you see anything as cool as this at your Halloween party?
