What's The Matter With A Game Boy?: Tetris Played On 29-Story Building In Philadelphia

April 7, 2014


This is a brief video of Tetris being played on the 29-story Cira Centre building in Philadelphia. The game was orchestrated by Drexel University game-design professor Frank Lee and game designer Henk Rogers and played using hundreds of LEDs embedded in the building's windows.

The spectacle kicks off a citywide series of events called Philly Tech Week and also celebrates the upcoming 30th anniversary of Tetris.

Listen -- I don't know who the hell was playing the game when the video was shot, but they might be the worst Tetris player I've ever seen. It's like they thought the goal was to reach the top using as few pieces as possible.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Aaron E, who once played Tetris on the surface of the moon, so there.

    When i worked across the street from that building I was introduced to Geekologie by a co-worker. Next thing you know I was "Geekologieing" in the morning, the afternoon, and as soon as I got home. I couldn't stop. It just keeps calling me! But now that I have a smart phone and the Geekolgie app, I can get my fix whenever I feel my blood itching.
    Just sayin......
