Halloween is right around the corner, and while you are looking for spooky decorations and costumes for your office party or home, some technologies can assist you in creating the desired atmosphere. Using technology will put a new twist on traditional Halloween events that will make them more exciting, especially if you work in the IT industry or simply a tech enthusiast. Here are some Halloween tech decoration ideas that are sure to give trick-or-treaters and office workers goosebumps.

1. Augmented Reality Carving App

If you experienced trouble in the past with carving pumpkins to get all of the facial features precisely right, there is a new high-tech solution coming to the rescue. There are AR apps available that project a stencil onto the gourd, such as the Washington Post’s AR carving app. Also, if you have a small child at home who would like to participate in the pumpkin carvings but cannot be trusted with a sharp object, you can download apps where kids can do this digitally. In addition, there will not be any mess to clean up afterward.

2. Choosing Your Makeup

Are you sneaking around online for the perfect Halloween look? A custom augmented reality solution can help you with that! There are AR apps like Vampify and others with masks that virtually project Halloween makeup on your face. This way, you can make a spooky photo to scary your friends or use it as a reference for party makeup.

3. Haunted House App

This is one of the essential Halloween technology decorations apps. There are applications, such as Housecraft, that allow you to plan out all of the decorations in your home or office by giving you an AR view where you can insert your own decoration ideas to see how they would look in real life. This is very useful because this avoids a situation where you buy some decorations only to realize that they do not fit the overall theme.

4. Creating Spooky Props

Instead of shopping in stores for items that will give trick-or-treaters goosebumps, you can create 3D scan. Basically, you can scan any item that you want and then use a 3D printer to create a physical object. This will be very useful if you see decorations that you really like but cannot find them in stores. This way, you can scan them and then create an exact replica without any hassles.

5. Choosing a Halloween Costume

If you are buying your costume online, you do not have a chance to physically try it on. This prevents you from purchasing because if you do not like the look or the dimensions are not correct, you will have to send it back to the store, which is a big hassle. You can use AR apps to try on different costumes from the comfort of your own home while shopping online.

6. Scary AI

MIT has a new artificial intelligence project out to see if it can scare humans. First, it learns about what makes something scary, and then it applies what it learns to create creepy images of famous places like the Taj Mahal or Eifel tower. Humans help the machines learn by looking through images on Instagram or a website and then voting on whether or not it is scary.

Use Technology to Provide an Unforgettable Experience

The digital decorations mentioned above were created to make our lives simpler while providing users with the best experience possible. Planning a party is time-consuming and expensive. Therefore, it is very important to make sure everything goes as planned. Thanks to AR apps, you are able to plan out every detail of your party, starting with venue decorations and all the way to pick pout your costume.

As far as the experience is concerned, people are used to going to parties and seeing the same old jack-o-lanterns and skeletons on walls for a long time now. While the purpose of these decorations is to scare people, regular props just don’t do it anymore. Why not take your party to the next level and incorporate the latest technology actually to insert a frightening element? If you are organizing an office event, this is an excellent opportunity to showcase your creativity with the latest high-tech methods that are sure to impress even the most technologically advanced employees.

There are lots of AR apps available nowadays to provide you with the exact effect you are looking for. All you have to do is come up with a concept or design, insert it into the app, and you will see what it will like in real life. This way, there will be no surprises or disappointments. These are just some of the technologies being used for Halloween designs, and there are sure to be new ones that emerge as we get closer to October 31st. Therefore, stay tuned for the latest updates since technologies pop up every day.
