Gone are the days when the only option people had for business cards were the plain simple off whitish cards with the standard fonts. Nowadays it is all about getting creative and being different and this new Gamaeboy look alike is going to give you just that. It will not only contain and display your resume but it will also act as a simple gaming handheld which will allow you to play Tetris.

Oregon programmer Kevin Bates is the mastermind behind this business card which he calls the Arduboy. This has been named so because it makes use of the barebones Arduino board which is attached to an OLED screen. For those who don't know what that board is, it is the tiny computer which is fitted inside the Kegbot and Fish on Wheels. The card has been equipped with capacitive touch buttons to enable the most authentic gaming experience for users. The Arduboy also features a speaker and a replaceable battery which is going to last up to nine hours. Moreover, these kits are expected to sell for $30 each.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
