Looking for an amazing Halloween costume this year? Would you believe, "there's an app for that?"

Well, it's actually a bit more than an app. It's a clever way to control your costume with your smartphone. OK, follow me here. Have you heard the term "wearable tech?" This is wearable tech that gives your Halloween costumes incredible moving effects.

This is the work of former NASA engineer and now Halloween costume designer, Mark Rober. He worked at NASA for nine years, seven of which were spent working on the Mars rover. Controlling a robot rover on another planet gave Rober a ton of experience with remote controls.

Here's a video of some of the effects:

The app displays moving eyeballs, blood, guts and more. When you attach your phone to an article of clothing, the app gives your costume fun and creepy interactive features. For example, you can have a shirt with a skeleton on it, and with Digital Dudz, the eyes will roam from side to side all night long.
