Drexel University professor Frank Lee broke his own record in the Guinness Book of World Records.

 

 

Lee's game of Tetris, which was played on the facade of Cira Centre in April and kicked off Philly Tech Week, officially set the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Architectural Video Game Display.”

 

The game, which was played on the north and south sides of Brandywine Realty Trust’s skyscraper, beat the previous record in 2013 when Lee first adapted Pong for Philly Tech Week to the the 29-story University City skyscraper.

 

To pull off the plight Lee took advantage of existing lights inset in the building's facade and placed460 LEDs on each side of the building to form a 20-by-23-pixel screen.

The game of Pong took up about 59,800 square feet of the skyscraper, while Tetris took up about 119,600 square feet.
