Playable Tetris-O-Lantern | Video
I think this year I craved a cat into my pumpkin. It wasn’t terrible but only one step above the classic pumpkin face with the square teeth.
Some over achiever decided to make everyone else’s pumpkin look stupid.
Pumpkin carved into a playable Tetris-O-Lantern
After trying out a few pumpkins unsuccessfully, he eventually found one with the size and shape he needed to fit the whole grid on the front. The next step was to drill holes for each LED, carve squares around them for that pixelated look, and fit all the wiring into a large hole on the back. Finally, he added the master stroke to the whole creation, converting the pumpkin stem into a functional joystick which controls the game while still remaining attached to the pumpkin. The result is a pumpkin that can play a full game of Tetris, complete with difficulty levels and high score tracking.
