Scopetris Celebrates Oscilloscopes, Russians

Illustration for article titled Scopetris Celebrates Oscilloscopes, Russians

Oscilloscope hacks are generally reserved for the most extreme gaming geeks, but this version of "Scopetris" is something that any Tetris fan can appreciate. Running on an oscilloscope decked out with custom hardware, the creator actually drew each piece, giving the board an interesting juxtaposition of the physical and the digital. And it beats the hell out of Pong. Here's a vid of the gorgeous creation in action:

I'll bet that Alexey Pajitnov [tetris creator] and Karl Ferdinand Braun [developed the oscilloscope] never would have imagined that their collective ideas would come together one day_

I wonder what else can be done with an oscilloscope?

Doom anyone ?
