Tetris Theme on Wine Glasses (Wine Glass Tetris)

This is the original Tetris theme or Tetris Soundtrack, played on wine glasses by Dan Newbie.

The name of the Tetris theme song is “Korobeiniki” (Russian: Коробейники, English translation: Peddlers). This theme song is actually a nineteenth-century Russian folk song that tells of a meeting between a peddler and a girl, in which they haggle over the price of goods in a veiled metaphor for courtship. Outside Russia, “Korobeiniki” is widely known because of its appearance in Nintendo’s 1989 version of Tetris and is often referred to as “The Tetris Song” or “The Tetris Theme.”

After arrangements of “Korobeiniki” first appeared in Spectrum Holobyte’s Apple IIgs and Mac versions of Tetris, the song was re-arranged in 1989 by Hirokazu Tanaka as the “Type A” accompaniment in Nintendo’s Game Boy version of Tetris. It has since become closely associated with the game in Western popular culture. In 2008, UGO listed the Tetris theme as the 3rd best videogame music of all time.

Tetris …ROCKS: Awesome Rock Cover of Tetris’ Korobeiniki [Type A Theme]

Here’s my take on the Russian folk song “Korobeiniki,” better known as the “Type A” theme from Tetris on the Nintendo Game Boy. To the best of my knowledge, this song is public domain eligible. That means that I can offer it for sale to you geekers!

If you like what I do on YouTube and want to help fund TheHumanBaby’s college education while getting a rockin’ tune for your iPod, you can buy this song (and my original music from back when I was in a band) over at my ReverbNation page: reverbnation.com/store/artist_2364481

-Tim

The original tune “Korobeiniki” is a Russian folk song written in 1861 by Nikolay Nekrasov which makes it public domain eligible.

Tetris Light

Since its release from Soviet Russia in the early 80’s, Tetris has become firmly entrenched as one of the greatest computer games of all time. The symmetry, the strategy, the flashing, coloured bricks; frankly, it has everything a discerning gamer could possibly wish for.
Flash your retro credentials, and brighten up that minimalist apartment with this official Tetris Light that lets you redesign your desk lamp whenever you like. Simply connect one of the bricks to the mains and then as each new brick is placed into position they will light up through some kind of magical, pre-war 8-bit Russian science.*  Plus, during the day you can play a very short game of Tetris, although we’re almost certain that you won’t be able to form a perfect cube using every part. *Electricity is not really magical, and strictly speaking, not Russian either.

Tetris, The Movie - Trailer

Official Tetris Teaser Trailer. The invasion is beginning. It is inevitable. You created them, you can destroy them! I did not create Tetris, I was but the messenger. Tell me how to stop them. This is an extinction level event. No, don’t go! Let her go!

If Battleship gets its own movie, why not Tetris?

MB Led Final Show (8x8 rgb LED matrix network)

We are three French students from Telecom ParisTech and did this project as part of our studies in mars/april 2011.

It is inspired from 2010 GLiP project.

It’s a concept of small games and applications displayed on a dynamic block network using their 8×8 led matrix.

To interact with the network you can use each block as a remote by turning it at 180 degrees, then just choose the desired game, animation or music. When you want to replace the remote block into the network just turn it at 180 degrees again.

Possibilities are infinite: interactive chest, pong, and new game concepts…
