"PUMPKTRIS" - play Tetris in a pumpkin...

Now for a project that has finally found synergy between the Tetris game, an Arduino board and a pumpkin. Nathan's "PUMPKTRIS" uses an Arduino and a custom-made LED display fitted inside of a pumpkin - and a customised pumpkin stalk to use as a controller - for a version of a video game console that really does have a use-by date. You have to see it to believe it, so here goes:

 

Fantastic, just don't re-use the pumpkin for cooking afterwards. Visit Nathan's project page to find out more and make your own. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you are new to Arduino, join in with our range of Arduino-compatible hardwareprototyping shields and module range. A good start is the Freetronics Eleven, the Arduino Uno-compatible board with onboard prototyping space:
