Skyscraper Tetris breaks world record

A game of Tetris played on the side of a skyscraper has broken the world record for the largest architectural video game display.

Professor Frank Lee and two colleagues from Drexel University recreated the classic game on the side of a 29-storey CIRCA Centre in Philadelphia.

The ‘game screen’ was made from hundreds of lights embedded in the glass facade of the building and measured a shopping 11,000m2, breaking the previous record also set by Lee.

The game was played by dozens of Tetris-loving gamers in April using a joystick connected over a kilometre from the building, with the Guinness World Records organisation confirming the record earlier this week.
