NAME: Pumpktris

AUTHOR: Nathan Pryor, a DIY enthusiast from Vancouver, WA.

DESCRIPTION: Nathan’s original idea was to shape pumpkins into Tetris pieces. Since he ran out of time to grow the veggies, he opted for a simpler idea: a playable pumpkin Tetris. Yeah, because that does sound easier. The pumpkin’s body becomes a screen where the blocks fall down, just like in the original game. The best part? The stem is the controller! From the LED matrix to the Tetris code, Nathan created everything by himself, a very impressive work. We’ll spare you the technicalities but have a look at the whole building process here.

AMUSEMENT RATE: Why stick to a boring creepy Jack O Lantern when you could create the Pumpktris. It’s not because it is Halloween that you should put your love of video games aside. Your house will be the coolest of the block and your friends will be amazed by your craftsmanship. Once the party is over, just remove the electrical components and keep them for next year!

Gigantic net suspended in the air becomes a crowd-controlled sculpture powered by Google Chrome

By AMUSEMENT

[DIGITALLY-INSPIRED] Spanning 745 feet between buildings of downtown Vancouver, this monumental interactive sculpture was built for TED's 30th anniversary. At night, the net made of a fiber 15 times stronger than steel comes to live as projectors illuminate the structure. Visitors are then able to interact with the sculpture to transform it into a massive crowd-controlled artwork.
