So what do you get when you cross one of the world’s most popular video games of all time and a giant orange squash? Pumpktris. The days of goblins, witches, and slack-jawed faces carved into pumpkins are officially over, and forget hyper realistic zombie hoards. Nathan over at the DIY website HahaBird upgraded his pumpkin this year using 125 embedded LEDs and other hardware that makes use of the pumpkin’s stem as a joystick resulting in a playable game of Tetris that can even keep score. If you’re interested he carefully documented everything in this handy Pumpktris tutorial. Unless your porch has an arcade including Pumpkin Mario Bros. this Halloween, you’re basically not even trying. (via prosthetic knowledge)
