Night mode

University students from Kiel in Germany have worked on a quiet geeky retro-gaming kind of a project. The students worked on this as part of the Real-Time and Embedded Systems Group, Department of Computer Science at the Kiel University. They used LED panels placed on a building’s windows to create a display matrix with a resolution, similar to how they have been used in classic games. They are controlling this with a common Microsoft Xbox controller. In this video they are demonstrating their solution by playing Tetris and Breakout, using the building as a screen at night. Cool idea!
