Pumpkin carving has never been terribly geeky. Sure you can get highly detailed Doctor Who or Star Trek pumpkins but Nathan of DIY site HaHa Bird decided to use his DIY and programming skills to take pumpkin carving to the next level. It took him over a week, 126 LEDs, 265 pieces of heat-shrink tubing and 313 solder joints but the “Pumpktris” was born.
To play users simply jog the joystick/pumpkin stem to move a falling tetris piece and the LEDs show the corresponding piece on the front of the pumpkin moving in the game.
If you fancy trying it yourself or are just curious to see how Nathan created the “Pumpktris” check out his step by step guide here.
