MIT building turned into huge playable Tetris installation
It's not the first time a building was turned into a giant representation of the video game Tetris, as even in 2000 a Brown University group pulled off a similar stunt on the 10-story Sciences Library, but in that case they had permission of the university; not so in this case.
Hackers turned the Massachusetts Institute of Tehnology's (MIT) Green Building into a huge, glorified - and playable - Tetris game. Also known as Building 54, the building houses MIT's Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Science.
According to the MIT Gallery of Hacks (indeed, run by some at 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." On Friday, April 20, 2012, hackers succeeded in "gaming the system." As seen at the Gallery of Hacks, there was a gaming console nearby, controlling the immense playing field. After the words "TETRIS" scrolled across the building the building would then progress into the first level.
