Forget jack-o-lantern carving and bobbing for apples. Halloween is now about 3-D imaging, home automation and creative use of drones.

The future is 3D. Kids and adults alike will build costumes and props using 3D printers. It’s obvious that automation programming and use of motion sensors can be leveraged to improve haunted houses experiences. Control everything from the fog machines, the “blood fountains,” the science lab, audio distribution, lighting, numerous IP cameras and security features, and more—and everything can be turned on, or off, with just the simple touch of a button.

High-tech Halloween costumes are all the rage using LED lighting in a variety of way. Popular mechanics has quite a few samples for the DIYer in you.
Now that drones are affordable and readily available, we can probably expect to see some clever Halloween uses for the technology.
