Tetris And DDR Merge In Delightful Duet

You got your Tetris in my Dance Dance Revolution ...

Tetris is the game that often manages to feel fresh, even after nearly 30 years on the market. Not only has it been proven to physically change your brain, reduce traumatic flashbacks, and be labeled modern art, but now it turns out that the game can be played with a Dance Dance Revolution controller.

Unfortunately, the YouTube page for this video doesn't explain too much, like how long it took to put this crazy concoction concoction. The setup was assembled by a trio of MIT students, Leah Alpert, Russell Cohen, and Andrew Carlson. Aside from the DDR mats, the game is actually displayed on "Color Kinetic LEDs in laser cut acrylic tubes set in [ a ] chip-board matrix." Anyone who wants to recreate the installation can find the code on GitHub.

If you're interested in actually constructing a setup like this, you should start on it soon; my birthday's in a couple of weeks. Also, I'd really love it if you could figure out a way to work Karaoke Revolution's microphone into the control scheme.
