MIT Students Play Tetris with a Building!

Students of MIT took over building 54 on campus (also called The “Green Building“) for the Earth and Planetary Sciences department last Friday to turn the building into a playable Tetris game. They even used a console with controls to be able to move, rotate, and drop blocks.

An MIT blog called IHTFP said, “MIT hackers have long considered “Tetris on the Green Building” to be the Holy Grail of hacks, as the side of the building is a wonderful grid for the game.”

Now this is not exactly the first time something like this has been done. Brown University did so back in 2000, and Delft University in the Netherlands did it in 1995. But nonetheless, it is still a cool hack that has been done.

What do you think about this? What game next would you like to see hacked onto a building? Check out the video below to see it in action! All that’s missing is the Tetris theme in the background.
