Falling Blocks on Raspberry-Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

A VMW software production:

I made a Tetris-like game using two 8×8 displays (for the field), a 7-segment display (lines cleared and next piece) and a Wii-Nunchuck, all on the same i2c bus. The parts are all leftovers from a pile of i2c parts we got from adafruit for students to use in projects. The displays use the ht16k33 i2c LED driver.
