"Working" Apple iPhone Costumes Just Plain Win

Powered by a car battery and full-size 42-inch LCD TVs, these working iPhone Halloween costumes from Apple costume savants “Reko and Bobby” is surely iPhone fanaticism manifested in physical form.

Amazingly, this is not the first time the duo has created human sized iPhone costumes. In 2007, the two created smaller and simpler versions with 37-inch screens that displayed a looped video of real iPhone screens in use.

This year, however, shit got real:

With some heavy researching and some solid determination [John]Savio finally found a solution. He managed to modify the software on the iPhone to allow a live dual image output to the large 42″ lcd tv while maintaining the image in landscape mode [...]The team has about $US2000 into the two costumes and has no regrets

Two grand for one night of incredibly geeky fun. Did I mention each of these weigh 38kg?

Dudes got to work on their high fives though. Napoleon Dynamite there got left hanging something fierce. [YouTube Mac rumours via TUAW]
