Halloween is here, and if you’re videogame geek, and you want to have a geeky Halloween, today we might have something special for you.



This Halloween we’re going to see all sorts of creative pumpkins, but certain Nathan has managed to create a special Halloween pumpkin that lets you play Tetris on it. This pumpkin comes with 140 amber LEDs, a pair of LED Matrix “backpacks”, and a short handle joystick. In order to make this device work, Neithan created a LED matrix, soldered short wires into a daisy chain, made holes into a foam-core board for the LEDs, and he even coded the game by himself. He also added a controller by drilling the hole into the stem and inserting a shaft in it.

This Tetris Halloween pumpkin looks amazing, and if you want to make your own, Nathan was kind enough to leave detailed instructions online, if you ever wish to make your own.
