Giant ‘Tetris’ Game seen on Skyscraper Adorned with LEDs


Imagine seeing a Tetris game on a 29 story building. This happened as Drexel University associate professor installed colored LEDs on the side of the building. Earlier this year, Drexel University‘s Dr. Frank Lee, an associate professor in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and founder of the Entrepreneurial Game Studio, adorned a skyscraper in LED lights to create the world’s largest game of Tetris. The lights covered the north and south sides of Brandywine Realty Trust’s Cira Centre skyscraper. The 29 story building featured Philips Color Kinetics LED lights on the two sides, enabling two players to take part at the same time. 460 LEDs on each side formed a 20 x 23-pixel screen for the game.
