Tetris alarm clock is just mean, mean, mean


I love my sleep. I love my Tetris. But the two just should never mix; playing the classic Gameboy game while doozy will leave you with a blocky mess of a screen before you can even begin to hum “Korobeniki“.

Obviously nobody told that to Instructables member nolte919, who has constructed the most sadistic alarm clock of all time; one that wont stop beeping until you’ve taken on four lines of Tetris.

You can hit the snooze button for thirty seconds of peace, but once that’s up you’re going to have to clear those lines if you ever want to relax again.

Hit the video above to see it in action and get an idea of how it was put together.

    Cool. It’s a classic game. Despite of the new and high tech games we have today, Tetris is a unique and entertaining game.
