    Link: Knight Rider on a Building - This Knight Rider-themed building light display blows the Tetris building out of the water. Right?

    I don`t know if it`s my strange obsession with Tetris, but nothing gets better than Tetris on a building.

    That must take so much coordination and group effort!

    I couldn`t do anything like that even if I dreamed it, all I can do is 16 and 8-bit in paint and draw.

    was it that amazing? or am i just not as easily amused as i used to be? O.o Maybe it`s one of those things that you have to see live in order to be wowed by it? I dunno.
    That was good though. Must have taken a long while to sort it all out.

    @ Pilanus: The tech specs wouldn`t work.

    To avoid the impression I`m talking out of my ass, NES res is 256*(224 or 240). Available palette`s 50 colors discounting PPU routines and global bits for color (de-)emphasis. GB has the lowest res at 160*144, so SML or SML2 would be most practical, and lights could be adjusted for brightness to create the shades of grey used on GB. To do that, you`d need to find a skyscraper, wider than it is tall, that has over 20K windows. Even PS + an anim program wouldn`t work well, since at an assumed screen res of 1024*768, 1024 / 160 = 6.4 and 768 / 144 = 5.3. Subtract 1 pixel for window space, you`d be looking at windows 1/2 the size of these letters. They`d be smaller than a mosquito c*ck, and the video, unstreamable.

    If Mario was possible, you`d blackout the country, and the only thing streaming would be bills. Out your ass.

    G*ddamn I`m such a partysh*tter.

    The display is pretty cool. But the fact that it supports Knight Rider is .... ehh ... debatable.

    I loved the show but am less likely to support it now since Hasselhoff became such a major tool.

    I thought that looked pretty cool but,the fact that the tetris one was playable, makes it much much more impressive.
