This 6-Foot Tetris Board is Controlled By DDR Dance Pads

When I’m out at parties, or out with nerds, and the conversation turns to video games I often describe my gaming style as ‘Like a 12-year-old girl.” I absolutely love old school Nintendo and Atari games and will play those whenever I can. I own an Xbox and a Wii, but I tend to gravitate toward games like DDR, Mario Kart, and Dance Central more than I do popular “gamer” titles.

This video, combines two of my favorite games of all time, Tetris and DDR together into an interactive Tetris game controlled by DDR dance pads. The giant 6-foot displays were created by 3 MIT students using LEDs, and the end result is pretty amazing.

I’d love to get in on some dance mat-controlled Tetris sometime, and the concept is pretty awesome. Can you think of any other games that would fun to play in unique ways?
