This LED Game Table Can Play Tetris

 |  |  |  |  June 26, 2020

Looking for a unique piece of furniture for your living room or game room? Well, skip the IKEA and go for something a bit more geeky, I say. This cool coffee table has LEDs built into its top which can display a colorful light show, or even play simple video games.

Etsy sellerĀ RetroGamesTable makes these neat pieces of electronic furniture over which pack a 12 x 12 grid of LED squares beneath their surface, each of which can be assigned a different color. Its Arduino controller allows it to display various patterns, as well as to play Tetris and Snake using a classic NES-style gamepad.

The light-up tables come in a single player square version that measures about 21.6″w x 21.6″l x 17.7″h, as well as a two-player rectangular model that’s 35.4″w x 21.6″l x 17.7″h, and has twice as many LEDs. The smaller one sells for $370, while the bigger one is $650. Keep in mind that these ship from Ukraine, so it might take a little while for them to get to you, but from the reviews I read over on Etsy, it should be worth the wait.
