Control a game of Tetris with your body and a buddy

One of you takes charge of moving the blocks left to right, and your partner controls the blocks' rotation

A new take on Tetris called Lummo Blocks lets you use your body as the controller for directing the motion of the famous falling blocks. Playing with a buddy, one of you takes charge of moving the blocks left to right, and your partner controls the blocks' rotation, all in the public space of a Spanish plaza. Will strangers help or hinder you as you try to create lines of blocks?

Created by MediaLab Prado (Lummo: Carlos Gutierrez, Mar Canet and Jordi Puig; and Javier Lloret), the designers' goal for Lummo Blocks is to "create a playful interactive space-located experience" in the Plaza de Las Letras in Madrid, encouraging passersby to team up with strangers and interact in the plaza.

If you're in Madrid on a Friday evening, check this out and let us know what it's like in real life!

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
