This new Arduino based card will not only contain your resume but will also feature the Tetris game

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.
