A Tetris Playing Pumpkin (the stem is the controller) - crazy!

Here’s some­thing I came across that is sim­ply to cool not to share. A pump­kin carved with a fully playable ver­sion of Tetris! The stem is used as the controller.

A com­plete DIY tuto­r­ial is avail­able at HaHa Bird if you want to give the project a go your­self. There’s also a video of Pump­k­tris in action.

When it was all said and done, the project used 128 LEDs, 256 pieces of heat-shrink tub­ing, 313 sol­der joints, and around twelve hours of work over the course of a week and a half.

How effec­tive is a pump­kin as a plat­form for Tetris? Some­one already racked up a high score of 9,800. Amazing!
