    So.... it's Tetris on a circuit board.... and he extended the wires for the LEDs and drilled holes in a pumpkin for the LEDs to shine through?

    Maybe I'm missing something..... why is this interesting?

    I understand playing tetris on a skyscraper, because A) it's a skyscraper B) getting the rooms to light up on queue is difficult, but this is just LEDs, it's just... normal tetris... but LOOK! It's in a Pumpkin!

    Can someone explain why this is interesting?

    ...can never be stopped by boundaries of "That's a silly idea" or "That'll never work".

    Thank you nerds, techies, geeks and other misanthropic, misunderstood outcasts!
    Even though this project may just be a game, this type of devotion to science and technological innovation is how we have advanced as a species.

    1. It's holloween 2. dude programed an andrino to do tetris 3. dude drilled a zillion holes in a pumpkin and turned the stem into a joystick Is it amazing? No... but certainly creative, geeky, and fits the season.
