We've seen a number of video games brought into the real world as art. Real Life Tetris, shown here, was created using crates on a giant wall in Melbourne. The art was created by "Sam. Jerome, Ed and Gab."
Implications - It's just a shame that you can't actually play this life-sized game of Tetris for real. It would be a totally different experience to maneuver blocks on a canvas of this magnitude -- especially if you are used to a tiny GameBoy screen. Just cue up the iconic Russian music from the original game, and you'd be well on your way to reliving an essential part of vintage gaming culture.
