Crazy Russian Hacker has made a name for himself with various “life hack” videos (yes, they are all crazy), and now he’s ready to wow us with a pumpkin that can carve itself with dry ice. It’s a pretty neat effect if you’re looking to impress your guests at a Halloween party.
In the demonstration video, the Hacker goes through the normal motions of de-seeding and cutting out a face in the pumpkin, and then he puts the pieces back inside. He then grabs a ziplock bag with some warm water in it and drops a piece of dry ice inside. At that point, the most important thing is to make quick work of the next steps in order for the effect to have any, well, effect: dropping the bag inside the pumpkin, seconds later the mouth pops out. Add a bit more dry ice, and sure enough, the whole face pops out at once! There you have it, a self-carving pumpkin (kinda)! The pumpkin also looks like he’s puking smoke when it happens, which is especially appropriate for your next Halloween haunting.

Literally, you name it, he’s probably hacked it.
