Tetris Gets an LED Makeover

by Paul Strauss

A team of tech wizards working with Spark Fun Electronics has built together this awesome wall-sized Tetris game that’s uses colored LEDs to animate the game.

The game features a unique interface that controls the movement and rotation of the game pieces by pressing on square backlit LED buttons. The build team painstakingly assembled a grid of 240 buttons, 720 red, green and blue LEDs and 16 micro-controllers as well as a bunch of custom application code make it all work.

Nothing like a little ingenuity to breathe new life into an old (but classic) arcade game.
