mikontalo tetris.

This is triple awesomeness: I love bright coloured lights. I love Tetris. I love Scandinavia. So it’s almost too much for me to handle when some crazy Finnish dudes design a giant real-time game of Tetris on the side of a high rise.

Mikontalo is a big student housing complex at the Tampere University of Technology in Finland. In case you’re curious, its address is Insinöörinkatu 60, 33720 Tampere, Finland. The entertainment value of Finnish spellings aside, the students that live there are behind the Mikontalolights project – whose goal is to create the “world’s largest colored graphics platform by using the windows of Mikontalo’s D-staircase as light pixels”.

Basically, Finnish tech-geeks are rigging a big ass Tetris game on the side of their dorm. How freaking cool is that?
