Are you without power and bored? Well, here’s an all-natural (OK, 90 percent natural) video game that runs on AA batteries — and, in an emergency, you can eat it when you’re done. Because this working Tetris game is made out of a pumpkin.


Creator Nathan Pryor has step-by-step Pumpktris instructions on his website, if you’re handy with a soldering iron, a drill, and an Arduino. The rest of us will just gape in awe at this perfect melding of cabin fever preparedness, Halloween spirit, and straight-up geek godhood.
