Table-top Tetris game from York uses a Raspberry Pi 2 for retro gaming goodness

John Cooper from York Hackspace has created a tabletop Tetris game for their space. It uses a Raspberry Pi 2 to control strips of Neopixel-like LEDs which sit in little foam cube holes beneath the translucent tabletop surface. It’s low-resolution but it is, frankly, beautiful and it’s not limited to just playing Tetris either – a version of Snake is planned and the system is capable of two-player action too! He welcomes your pull requests on GitHub if you have any game ideas! The code is available here and you can read a little more in this blog post from York Hackspace.
