Standing two feet tall, this animated zombie looks like he is pulling himself out of the ground, and when you least expect it he spits out fog from his decaying mouth. The hard-plastic frame under his shirt has an attached 110-volt motor that turns his head from side to side. The three-foot-long connector and hose attachment will fit on standard fog machines (not included). Simply stuff the sleeves with crumpled newspaper, hook up the hose, and get ready to freak out your friends.

Drone Ghost

This one’s a bit of a DIY, but if you have a drone, you can transform it into a drone ghost, clown, ghoul, really any scary creature you can think of. You can either buy a creature or make your own — cheesecloths make great ghosts — to drape over your drone. Nothing will be funnier than seeing the look on your friends’ faces as a ghost comes flying straight toward them.

Forget waiting! Here’s all the CES 2022 tech you can buy right now

CES is chock-full of new product announcements every year, but unfortunately, most of them are just that: Announcements. Tech companies come out, loudly proclaim that their latest gadget will transform your life, and then quietly mutter that it won't actually be available until some yet-t0-be-determined point in the next year. As such, most of what we see at CES in a given year ends up being annoyingly unattainable.

But thankfully, not everyone at CES shows up with a booth full of flashy promises. A rare few of them come to the show with products that are ready to ship right away, immediately after they're revealed. So as a tip of our hat to those thoughtful few who go the extra mile to provide us the instant gratification we crave, we've rounded up all the best CES gear that you can buy right now. Everything on this list will ship before the end of January, if not sooner. Enjoy!

If you’ve got a Nest Video Doorbell, there are a lot of cool things you can do with it -- but one of the most fun things is to add new sounds to the doorbell to celebrate Halloween. You see, Google offers what it calls seasonal themes for its Nest doorbell settings. There’s an option for the winter holidays, but right now is the perfect time to choose the version that plays spooky sounds during the Halloween season (no matter how many people may be showing up at your door this year). Here’s exactly how to enable it.

Note: Our guide is for the Nest Doorbell, wired and battery models. The older Nest Hello doorbell works a bit differently, but the steps in this guide should still apply. While newer Nest Doorbells may get more evergreen themes, Google is still rolling out seasonal themes like Halloween to all doorbells for now.
