Did You See This? Playable Pumpkin Tetris

A still from "Pumpktris" by Nathan Pryor


What's your jack o' lantern look like this year? Can you play video games on it? Nathan Pryor turned a pumpkin into a working game of Tetris, with the stem serving as a controller. No joke: He explains the incredibly detailed process on his website.

Best Halloween parlor trick ever? I haven't seen better.
