We’re huge fans of Halloween at Noodle Live. Not only is it a great reason to put on silly costumes whilst we tinker with our latest event apps, we also love all the great geek toys and useless tech products that appear at this time of year too. From screaming doormats to flying witches, Halloween is a time when you’re allowed to play with toys and use tech at its most ridiculous. Here’s our pick of the best spooky tech on the market this year.
3D Printed Masks Of Your Own Face
Forget selfies, why not imotalise the perfect pout and scare the bejesus out of all of your friends with a 3D printed mask version of your own face? Sanity. That’s why. These terrifying items from the bowels of hell are available from the folks at ThatsMyFace.com. They also offer personalised action figures, Lego toys and mountable works of art, so you can terrify your friends in all kinds of new and exciting ways.
Wearable mask: $299
Home Science Project
Pumpkin carving is for whimps (even though it’s surprisingly hard work and quite fiddly actually, but you know, whatever). These days you have to take your autumn squash to the next level with awesome special effects and a little amateur chemistry if you want to hang with the Halloween in-crowd. Amazing what a little baking soda and some vinegar can do.
Oozing pumpkin: Make Your Own
Host a Ghost
Feeling daring? Don’t believe in any of that spooky mumbo jumbo? Ok, well then we dare you to host a ghost at your home this Halloween. Home services app Handy are offering to deliver ghostly plants from the legendary haunted gardens of historic Samlesbury Hall. Any client using the app can request a ‘potted poltergeist’, although they can’t guarantee that the ghost is definitely included.
Haunted shrubs: Free to selected Handy users
Zombify Yourself for Instagram
We were told to try the Corpse Cam app to create instant Zombie images of ourselves, but it turns out that Corpse Cam makes you look like an ageing Donald Trump after a nuclear attack, so we stuck with Masquerade which we’ve been big fans of for a while now. We reckon Team Noodle look pretty good as foxes, ice queens and cardboards boxes.
Masquerade or Corpse Cam: Both free in iTunes

Oh us, you’re looking at us? Well we ought to rip that baby face right out of that creepy moving shirt. Keep your eyes straight ahead creepy baby.
