Scopetris - Tetris on an oscilloscope



Lars Pontoppidan created a Tetris game using a simple microcontroller for the program, and a standard oscilloscope for the screen, and called it Scopetris. For those of you who saw my post about the oscilloscope clock, and saw how excited I got - well this is even cooler. You see, an oscilloscope is a fairly boring piece of equipment, that sits around the shop waiting for something to do, and then when you use it it shows you waves (changes in voltage over time) and then you move on. It is a tool that was never designed to show an image of something other than those voltages over time. These projects change all that. No, this isn't some earth shattering advance in technology, it's simply hacking at its very finest.

A shout out to Rolf van Widenfelt for bringing this project to our attention.
