Nerds pull off awesome hack to play Tetris on MIT building4/22/2012
The talented hackers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have pulled off an impressive feat with what they call the "Holy Grail" of hacks: turning the campus' Green Building into a giant, 21-story version of the classic video game Tetris. On Friday night, a tech-savvy crowd gathered in the dark to play the live game, replete with a small controller and increasing levels of difficulty. A scrolling illumination of the word "Tetris" kicked things off before participants began moving enormous, multi-colored blocks side to side, rotating them, and dropping them to the first floor. In 2000, a group from Brown University did a similar stunt on the 10-story Sciences Library, but that was with permission from university authorities.
