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.
