Yep, it’s All Hallows Eve again. That time of the year when small children dress up in various spooky costumes and it’s actually encouraged to ask strangers for sweets.
I’m a massive fan of ‘scary’ movies, so Halloween TV is great for me. Admittedly this is mainly for their comedic value more than anything else, though I’m not entirely sure what that says about me…? That being the case I decided to have a roam around blogs and sites looking for ‘Halloweeny’ type stuff. Of course on our own website at Gadgets.co.uk we have a few gadgets suitable for scary occasions such as our The Thing Crawling Hand.
The following I feel are the best of the ‘Gadgets’ that I’ve found. First of all there is this great Skull Candle Holder.
What I like about this is that when the candle starts to melt, the wax flows out of the eye sockets giving a blood like effect making it look a lot creepier. Something to shock trick or treaters with is this great ‘Pizza Face’. No, it’s not a spotty teenager, it is in fact this rather disturbing pizza with a face seemingly trying to escape, perfect for surprising the poor unsuspecting individuals knocking on your door, or maybe for slipping into the middle of a pile of pizzas at a party…
Although I couldn’t find any pictures of it I was also impressed, at least in theory, by the ‘Haunted Bush’. You strategically place this in a hedge or similar and is triggered by motion sensors. Upon being triggering it causes the hedge to shake violently, make growling noises, and flash red eye-like red LED’s, giving the impression that your garden plants are either possessed or hiding some sort of gruesome monster!
Whatever you have planned for your own Halloween, all of us here at Gadgets Towers hope you have a spooktacular (Yes, I did say “Spooktacular”… sorry) time, I myself shall mostly be hiding behind the sofa watching scary films. Mostly.
