This business card lets you play Tetris

Technical designer Kevin Bates has done something phenomenal: he has designed and built the Arduboy, an interactive digital business card that lets you play Tetris on an OLED screen. We’re stopping short of calling it a credit-card-sized Game Boy, but the Arduboy is nonetheless very impressive:

The controls are capacitive touch sensors. If you enter the Konami code, the Hack a Day logo pops up and the card starts playing Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.
