  • Giant iPhone 4 Costume Just in Time for Halloween


    John Savio has been busy this year preparing the ultimate iPhone Costume. He worked for 40 hours over a three-day period building a fully functional iPhone 4 costume. This masterpiece uses a 40-inch LED LCD panel, strapped to a sandwich board. A jailbroken iPhone 4 runs the device. The attention to detail is quite impressive: it even includes the iPhone 4’s rear-camera LED light. This iPhone 4 costume doesn’t quite live up to a standard iPhone’s battery life, however, as it uses a mini 12-volt battery that lasts only about 2 hours. It weighs in at 75 pounds, so I would imagine John won’t be wearing it all night or going trick-or-treating in it.

    John Savio is no stranger to iPhone costumes. Together with Reko Rivera and Bobby Hartman, the three have built iPhone 3G and 3GS costumes for previous Halloweens. This year John wanted to take it a little further and create a fully functional iPhone 4. Past costumes have used looping video of a real iPhone screen during normal use. This year’s model relies on a jailbroken iPhone 4, but for all intents and purposes, he has built a real working 40-inch iPhone 4.

    When I was a kid I always wanted to get the most elaborate Halloween costumes imaginable. I always went as something cool, but never would I have imagined something as fantastic as this. You’ve really raised the bar, Mr. Savio.

      This probably isn't quite as cool or an amazing feat as it looks on the surface. Am I understanding right that this is simply a display that the iphone plugs into? There is no functionality from the screen, just essentially a large battery powered display which is displaying whatever is on the iPhone 4 screen (or whatever iphone he plugs in)? If that's the case, just about any detailed cosplay costume is more amazing.

      But that's more "Halloweenish" than a phone.

      So? For some people it's more of a fun thing to do. How come Michael Jackson was last year's most popular halloween costume and this year it's Lady GaGa?

      thats a cool costume...but 75 pounds!! thats crazy!! thats more than half of how much I weigh...plus I was running all night, but forget about that when you have this costume. another thing that would be kool would be like put a photo on the iphone with a pic of a skeleton body or sumthing that would look like its giving you an x-ray..IDK??!! you can do crazy stuff with this costume!!! even though its heavy I would def buy it.

      ^ X-Ray/other preloaded costumes on the iphone screen would be fun to play with. Would suck tho if someone pushed you into a lake, or you got piss drunk and fell face first and cracked your iphone screen. Make sure you get a bumper or a case too for that costume... reception sucks with a dude in the middle of the phone... then again, maybe he's wearing it wrong? LOL

      I don't understand why asking for the value of retina display on this costume is pointless?

      Because they have all lost the meaning of Halloween. Same people that dress up as pimps, cinderellas, fairys, GI Joe, Power Rangers, Hannah Montana, Police, Cowboys, Peter Pan, Spongebob Squarepants, Superman, a cell phone, Super Mario, Luigi, bunny rabbits, snow white, and kitty cats.

      Its okay though. I don't mind it....i'm just more into "scary" Halloween tradition.
