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!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
