Make a wearable Tetris T-Shirt

We don't mean a t-shirt with a picture of the game, instead a masterpiece of wearable electronics that is a Tetris game in a t-shirt. Created by Marc Kerger, the Arduino-compatible circuit and lots of RGB LEDs are fitted inside the shirt, allowing the light to shine through with an outstanding effect, as shown in the following video:

Although not all the colours of the LEDs have been used, with some extra coding this could be made possible. Marc has used the code from the original Pumpkin Tetris that we highlighted a while ago with great success.

The only problem would be dealing with players who are too enthusiastic with the buttons. Nevertheless for more discussion about the project and some updates, check out Marc's YouTube page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Need a small Arduino-compatible for use with your own projects? Then check out out our LeoStick. It's the Arduino Leonardo-compatible board that's cheaper and smaller than the original:

 Apart from being one of the smallest Arduino-compatibles on the market with USB, it also has an onboard RGB LED and piezo which can be used a knock sensor and various tune and sound effects. Plus you can add extra circuitry with the matching protostick! For more information and to order, click here.
