Tetris. Since its debut in 1984, it’s found its way onto nearly every possible platform. Game consoles. Graphing calculators. Lab equipment. Buildings.

Now its found its way onto the most elusive and coveted platform of all: some dude’s chest.

In honor of Tetris’ 30th anniversary, tinkerer Mark Kerger grabbed 128 LEDs, a fistful of batteries and an Arduino Uno, and crammed ’em all together inside of a plain white tee.

The end result: Tetris. On his T-shirt. Tee-tris? Chestris?
