Tetris is a classic game, so why not merge it with another classic? One that forces you to bust a move in order to rotate that Tetris piece and drop it in place. I’m talking about a six foot tall Tetris game controlled with a Dance Dance Revolution dance mat.

This combo was created by three MIT students who had an urge to play an LED matrix game of Tetris in a new way. Acrylic tubes were laser cut into pieces and attached to a frame. The LEDs inside the tubes then light up and create the game in front of your eyes.

You can play by yourself or against friends, just like the original DDR. Want to try your hand at this project? If so, you can find the code here. This may lead to a new Dance TV show called “So you think you can Tetris?
