And Now You Can Play Tetris On Your Shirt
Every Wednesday, Adafruit shares an awesome piece of technology-enabled clothing in their #WearableWednesday series, and this week's entry is making our gamer hearts melt with a dose of fabric softener. DIY tech enthusiast Marc Kerger made a T-Shirt enabled with 128 LEDs, Arduino, and some batteries, yielding a blinking, cotton Tetris board that is playable on the go.
Kerger notes that the shirt was inspired by the Pumpkin Tetris project from Instructables (which we covered a few Halloween's ago), and the result is truly awesome. Can't play Snake or Flappy Birds on your commute due to a dead cell? No worries, your shirt's got you covered for some real, personalized entertainment. We can only hope Kerger follows this up with an Asteroids V-neck. Just be wary of getting food stains on this wearable gem.
