The Techie Way to Carve a Halloween Pumpkin

From checking the weather to mailing a letter, techies find a way to incorporate gadgets into every task. Up next? Using these three devices and websites to create the perfect Jack O'Lantern.

Obsessed with gadgets? Use these three tools when you carve your halloween pumpkin:

Pumpkin Gutter Drill Attachment
The worst part about carving a Jack O'Lantern has to be scooping up all that junk from inside the gourd. Make the task easy with a drill attachment called the "Pumpkin Gutter." It looks like some kind of crazy kitchen mixer, but it's designed to best remove pumpkin seeds and strings and thin your pumpkin's walls. Grab one here.

Online Jack O'Lantern Stencils
Once you've got your pumpkin prepped, head online to find the perfect stencil. Both Pumpkin Masters and Spook Master offer free PDF pattern downloads to upgrade your pumpkin's spooky face.

LED Pumpkin Lights
The candles and tea lights that are traditionally stuffed inside Jack O'Lanterns are boring and risky. Upgrade to a battery-powered LED and rest easy knowing your pumpkin can glow all night long—without a blaze. Grab a simple light, or go crazy with strobe and multi-colored styles. There's even a light that "breathes"!
