Tetris Wedding Cake

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2011

Marriage can be a lot like Tetris. Sometimes the pieces fall slow and they all click into place. Other times… At least I think that’s what this cake signifies.

The cool thing about this Tetris cake is that all of the pieces are separated so you could actually play the game if you wanted. Cool cake. Not sure what it says about their wedding though. May they have many games of Tetris ahead of them.

Lego robot plays Tetris

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on April 21st, 2010


We’ve seen our share of robots and we’ve seen our share of Tetris related items. But until now, the two have never collided in such a cool way. This robot plays Tetris! Branislav Kisacanin’s Tetris-Bot uses a video camera to watch the computer screen and determine which shape is which and where to put them.

That info is then sent to a Lego Mindstorm NXT robot, who hovers over the keyboard with three fingers. You might also notice the R.O.B.-like head too.

Working Game Boy costume plays Tetris

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on February 15th, 2009


This guy decided to turn himself into a Game Boy. He used a bunch of cardboard and a laptop is hidden inside that controls the screen. As you might expect and as he states himself, it’s a pretty fragile setup, but well worth it.

It even has the sound effects. The sad thing is that while in the Game Boy suit he can’t play himself. He can only watch others enjoy a game of Tetris. Pretty cool costume. You have to love Game Boy a whole lot to turn yourself into a walking handheld.

Tetris & Breakout piggy banks makes saving fun again

Tetris & Breakout piggy banks makes saving fun againBack in the day it cost just one quarter to play your favorite arcade machine. Well, now you can play two Atari arcade classics for just one penny. They aren’t totally faithful to the original arcade machines, but hey it only costs a penny and you get to save that penny. A penny played is a penny earned.

Every coin you drop in starts a new game, which is much cooler then say, dropping your coins in a bank shaped like a pig. These aren’t easy to find outside of Japan, but Strapya World is taking pre-orders and they will ship them worldwide. They’ll cost you $39.90.

Tetris + arm wrestling = Tresling

Tetris + arm wrestling = Tresling
The world of geek sports just got more competitive. Tetris and arm wrestling have collided and now has a name. Trestling. Not since peanut butter collided with chocolate to create the Reeses cup, has there been such excitement.

It’s got everything a geek could want. It’s competitive and violent, with two players smashing their arms against sensors that move their blocks left and right. All to the tune of “Eye Of The Tiger” of course. Buttons control the rotation of the pieces. Do you have what it taks to become top dork in the championship tournament? It actually looks pretty fun and challenging. Check out a video below of the game in action.
