American students turn skyscraper wall into Tetris field

This year, gamers around the world celebrate a significant anniversary - the 30th anniversary of the game Tetris, created by our compatriot Alexei Pajitnov. As it turned out, despite such a venerable age, it is still popular in many countries of the world.

Indeed, on an American scale, students of the University of Drexel decided to "congratulate" the hero of the day, who on April 5 played the good old Tetris on the wall of the 29-storey Cira Center skyscraper in Philadelphia. Something similar was carried out earlier by gamers in France and students of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The show was a success. It could not be otherwise, because among its participants were the president of Tetris company Hank Rogers and Dr. Frank Lee, the author of the idea of ​​turning giant buildings into a field for video games. His record, included in the Guinness Book of Records, is a functional display on the wall of a building 133 meters high and with a total area of ​​over 10 thousand square meters.
