If you’re looking to make your house that extra bit spooky this Halloween then forget fake cobwebs and plastic masks. We’ve brought together a few 21st century terrifying ideas for the tech savvy. Read on for our 4 spooky tech ideas for the ultimate Halloween house.
- Horror Projection
The AtmosFX Holiday Digital Decorating kit gives you an instant Halloween scene that’ll certainly give your house that haunted look.
The kit comes with a high-definition projector and tripod for projecting one of 14 pre-loaded spooky scenes onto any flat surface. Some of the scenes include Werewolf, Stalking Startlers and Zombie Swarm. The kit also includes a remote control that allows you to change the scene instantly.
The kit also comes with a window film. Just apply it to a large window, and it appears if the ghouls are lurking inside your house.
The kit comes in at a cost of £284.97 from Amazon.co.uk
- Wireless Speakers
Wireless speakers are amazing. Having them dotted around the house playing the ultimate Halloween-themed soundtrack could add the extra spook to your house. There are plenty of playlists to choose from containing all kinds of Halloween sound effects and spooky music, check this one out on Spotify.
If looking for a cheaper and more discreet alternative, the Sengled Pulse Solo is a LED lightbulb with built-in Bluetooth speaker for easy horror music streaming. The lightbulb plugs into regular lightbulb sockets, so you could even put in an outdoor light that you have.
The Sengled Pulse Solo is available on Amazon.co.uk for £49.99
- Screaming Doormat
This battery-operated Screaming Doormat will scare both trick-or-treaters and the postie. The small, pressure-activated device hides under your doormat. When guests arrive, they’re greeted with the sound of thunder and screams – plus a mysterious voice “Enter at your own risk” and “Welcome to the Haunted House”.
The Screaming Doormat can be found on Amazon.co.uk, two AA Batteries are also included.
- Ghost Drone
You don’t have to wait for trick-or-treaters to come to you. With this idea, you can fly to them.
