  • 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.

      It's connected to his iPhone so if he facetimed or used his camera his iPhone 4 costume would display it!

      The real question:
      does the costume (or the man) support multi-touch?
