Make Neighbors Jealous by Displaying a Working Tetris Pumpkin

Redo the typical jack-o-lantern and make all trick-or-treaters jealous this year by displaying a working Tetris pumpkin at the doorstep.

Dubbed the 'Pumpktris,' the Tetris Pumpkin was a home project created by Nathan Pryor. Pryor manually drilled tiny holes in the pumpkin, lining them up to mimic the actual Tetris board, and placed LEDs in each individual hole. Powered by four regular AAA batteries, the nerdified pumpkin begins to drop pieces like a regular game, only there is no actual player. Like a never-ending cycle for high level gamers, the game 'player' will never die, unless the batteries run out. Although the Pumpktris is a wonderfully nerdy and attractive piece to flaunt to fellow neighbors and trick-or-treating children, beware of envious candy hunters who may snag the beloved pumpkin for their own house.
