Marc Kreger The Tetris T-Shirt (You Can Actually Enjoy A Quick Game On This One)!
Remember Tetris?
The coolest game around 30 years ago?

Game enthusiast Marc Kerger surely remembers it! For the game’s 30st anniversary (back on June 6th) Marc took a regular t-shirt, decorated it with some Tetris game design elements (to make it look cooler), 3D printed the main game’s compartment, inserted two Adafruit controllers, 128 LED’s and 4 AA batteries and made the first ever playable Tetris T-Shirt.
Watch him play a quick game in the attached video!

ALSO CHECK the Big Hand Printed T-shirt and the Official Marvel Iron Man 3 LED Light-Up T-Shirt we featured earleir.

This cool t-shirt is not available for sale and Kerger does not provide any instructions on how to make your own! But, if you want to give it a try and mingle with the components hoping to replicate his success, start by checking out this Instructables project which served his a start base for the project.

Check How This Guy Completed Super Mario Bros. With The Lowest Score Possible
If you ever played Super Mario Bros. (and you should have, unless you lived the last 30 years under a rock!) you must know it’s not an easy play! You have to defeat various foes, collect coins, discover secrets and beat bosses, all this by jumping around over and over again!

But how about playing the game in a different way? How about playing it to collect the less coins possible and kill no foes? This is what Youtube user NotEntirelySure did and his results are simply impressive. The first vid above shows a 600 point game play with no deaths (note that the lowest possible score is 500 points). The second video shows a 500 points game (although he lost a life at level 8-1 where you need to make it accros a very large gap without grabbing any coins).
Watch his impressive play!
