World’s Largest Tetris Game

largest tetris game

By David Ponce

Let’s say you’ve done well for yourself, and are now the proud owner of a large (preferably 10 or more stories high) building. You wish to enliven things up a bit, for passersby. This is what you should do: build the (second) world’s largest Tetris game.

This is how you do it. Outfit all the windows with, say, 10,000 Christmas lights. Then take eleven custom-built circuit boards, a twelve-story data network, a personal computer running Linux, a radio-frequency video game controller, spend five months tweaking and planning, and before you know it, you’ll have the entire front of your building running Tetris. It’ll be just like this one, off Interstate 95, in Rhode Island.

Wonder how it works? Come inside for a groovy video.
