Since Tetris was originally released in 1984, it has been made playable on everything from calculators to buildings, and of course a range of consoles. The t-shirt is one platform that has remained elusive, until now that is.
To celebrate Tetris’ 30th anniversary, Mark Kerger put his skills to the test and created a playable version of Tetris on a t-shirt. He used a plain white t-shirt as a platform and then threw in an Arduino Uno, some batteries and 128 LEDs to make everything possible.
The t-shirt has buttons to move and flip blocks and shows them moving down the screen. We imagine it’s trickier to play than a regular game of Tetris because you’ll have to play it in a mirror. Plus you’ll be jabbing yourself a lot! Best not make it an extended play session then.
