MIT Students Play a Game of Tetris on 21-Story Building
A group of students pulled off what they call “the holy grail of hacks” by turning MIT’s Green Building, which is home to the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department, into a 21-story version of Tetris. Cool! Can we play next?
In this awesome building-sized video game, the entire front of the structure represents the drop zone and its 153 windows light up accordingly to depict colored Tetris blocks. Students, meanwhile, move, rotate and drop the blocks from a podium across the street.
What’s even more impressive is that the hack is a fully-functional game, complete with a scrolling “TETRIS” title screen and three levels of increasing difficulty. It’s admittedly pretty amazing, but we bet there still aren’t enough long pieces when you need them.
