The Game You Can Wear
Is this the future, wearing a fully playable game on your T-Shirt? It would seem to be, especially if you are a super retro-games nerd-a-linger.
This T-Shirt, featuring a playable version of the game Tetris, was created by Luxembourg’s Marc Kerger, has been quickly been picked up as a news item on news sites across the internet, from Mashable to Metro UK to ABC News in Australia.
Kerger, an industrial designer, is reported to have created the Tetris Tee to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the seminal video game. He created it using LED lights and AA batteries (and a T-Shirt, of course).
No-one has yet answered the question: will the colours run in the wash?
Interesting Tetris fact: The game was invented in 1984 by Russian programmer Alexey Pajitnov. Because the Soviet Union was still in effect and he was working for the government at the time it was essentially deemed to be the property of the state. So it wasn’t until 1996 that Pajitinov saw any financial reward from the game.
