If you liked the plasma speakers post, check out Scopetris. The genius behind Scopetris is Lars Pontoppidan, an electronic engineer, who decided to go the “road less traveled” by implementing Tetris, instead of Pong, on an oscilloscope. If you aren’t an EE major, like myself, an oscilloscope, simply put, is a device that measures the wave form (i.e., the varying voltage/current signal over time) generated by a circuit. Lars uses a microcontroller and an Atari/Amiga joystick to control the game. You can read more details on the implementation over at his website.

Smart man he is.
