Myles recently ported an open Tetris clone to the Arduino. We added support for the Nunchuck (so now it works with both the Nunchuck and the Classic Controller) as well as music!

This project is a nixie tube reverse geocache box which unlocks to reveal its contents only when it’s in a certain place on the globe. It uses an Arduino, a GPS sensor, and three nixie tubes, which indicate the box’s distance from that special spot. When the button is pressed in that spot, a servo motor unlatches the lid. [via]

Oscar Gonzalez from BricoGeek has build a nice clock using 7 segment displays and LED matrix. The clock uses and Arduino MEGA with a Real time clock module and an SHT15 board from SFE. Six digits 10 cm tall shows the current hour and date. 4 LED display matrix are used to show temperature, humidity and an RSS feed from the Internet. [via]

How to hack the Logitech Revue, Google TV… with an Arduino [via]
The reason this is possible is due to the “out of factory” state of the Logitech Revue boxes not disabling the UART port on the board and allowing access to a root shell in recovery mode. After discovering this we were able to reverse the update files and manually upgrade the Revue to the most recent update. The attached files are our output of all the effort put forward by our team. Also as a notice to anyone performing the update, we are not responsible for any harm that may come of your box as an outcome of running our scripts. We will attempt to help you with any issues you may experience and have tried to make the process as safe as possible. Also if you have any suggestions or ideas on how we can make this process better please feel free to drop by our IRC channel and tell us.

Tweet-a-Pot: Twitter Enabled Coffee Pot using an Arduino and power switch tail. [via]
Like the idea of making coffee on the fly? from your bed? While you’re on the bus coming home? Then the Tweet-a-pot is for you! Tweet-a-pot is the next in fancy twitter enabled devices. This coffee pot enables its owner to make a pot of coffee from anywhere they have cell phone reception, using twitter and an arduino board.
