It's hard to believe Tetris has been around for over 25 years, yet is still an engaging and playable game. You can now recreate this with Arduino-comaptible boards and some inexpensive LED matrix kits as described by Instructables member jollifactory. They use common MAX7219-driven LED matrix kits, and two units provide enough pixels for a playable game. With the addition of a few buttons and a neat enclosure - the game is ready, and a quick demonstration is shown in the following video:
That's pretty cool, and the code could be translated for other display types - perhaps a DMD for a larger display? In the meanwhile, check out the project Instructable for complete details. And for more, we're on facebook, Google+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.
