Just how many ways can one guy use the video capabilities of his mobile devices to entertain us with? Well if you’re tinkerer Mark Rober, I guess the answer is “plenty.” After amusing us with his iPad Halloween costume and Gorilla Cam, Mark is back with another fun hack – the animated ugly sweater.

By mounting an iPad inside of a sweater rigged with a fake fireplace surround, Rober created the illusion of a warm holiday fire burning in the middle of his gut. Here, check it out in action:

You can grab the fireplace animation as part of Mark’s DigitalDudz Christmas iOS app. Be sure to keep an eye out on Mark’s youtube channel┬áin the coming days for a video showing how to make your own ugly fireplace sweater.
