Fright Night…


Halloween is about a week away– what’s a poor reader to wear?

Mark Rober and his company Digital Dudz offer a line of shirts and corresponding smartphone apps that create animated Halloween costumes…

This year, Mark is back with a new animation for his collection that displays a hand punching through your back and ripping your guts out. The gruesome animation is triggered by a smartphone’s internal motion sensor. When a friend pretends to punch his hand through your back and you arch your back, the gut ripping animation begins. [In the video below] Mark and his undead friend demonstrate how it works. The Digital Dudz apps (Apple and Android) and custom clothes are available to purchase online.

As we don our gay apparel, we might send terrifying birthday greetings to John Michael Crichton; he was born on this date in 1942.  An author, physician, producer, director, and screenwriter, he’s best known as a purveyor of techno-thrillers in the science fiction, medical fiction, and occasionally political thriller genres. The creator of  The Andromeda StrainJurassic ParkCongoSphereRising SunDisclosureThe Lost WorldTimelinePrey, and State off Fear, among many others, his books have sold over 200 million copies worldwide, with many adapted into films.  In 1994 Crichton became the only creative artist ever to have works simultaneously charting at No. 1 in television, film, and book sales (with ERJurassic Park, and Disclosure, respectively).
