As the York Hackspace’s writeup, “Tetris is such a ubiquitous computer game is because you don’t need a particularly high resolution display.” This translates to many non-traditional devices, like buildings or graphing calculators, but one of the cleanest-looking builds yet has to be Hackspace member John Cooper’s Tetris coffee table.

The table features 10 rows of NeoPixel-like programmable LED strips, making a colorful low-resolution display perfect for four-pixel blocks. These LED strips are chained together and controlled via a Raspberry Pi 2, while the light coming from from each LED is kept separate using a foam grid.

If you’d like to build your own, you can find the project’s code and game simulator on GitHub.
