Tetris Bookcase by Nadia Tokerud

Anna shared this project by Nadia Tokerud on the Adafruit discord channel.

So, after my boyfriend proposed to me using our bookshelf, he decided to do tetris.

It actually works, even on a 14×9 squares-grid. And yes, it’s totally playable.

You can see him proposing by having me play Snake on the shelf here: https://youtu.be/r0R5i4t3Oho

I quickly browsed the comment section of the video and noticed Nadia shared her code on github and some backstory on the build. Awesome work, Nadia! https://github.com/oyvindmb/bookworm/wiki

  1. Oh my, so glad you featured this!

    All credit for making the thing should really go to my husband, Øyvind Berntsen (he made snake work as a way to propose to me. Of course I said yes)

    In a talk he held about the making of the shelf earlier this year, he cited Adafruit with Limor Fried and the maker movement as his biggest inspirations. So fun to find our bookcase here!
