Quantumaniac is where it’s at - and by ‘it’ I mean awesome.

Over here I post a ton of physics / math / general interesting posts in an attempt to make your brain feel good. My aim is to be as informative as possible, all while posting fascinating things that hopefully enlighten us both a little to the mysteries of our truly wondrous universe(s?). Plus, how would you know if the blog exists or not unless you observe it? Boom, just pulled the Schrödinger’s cat card. Now you have to check it out - trust me, it said so in an equation somewhere.

MIT Plays Tetris via a Building
Every year, students at MIT pull a prank to show their engineering prowess. This weekend, they achieved what previous classes have only dreamed about: they turned Building 54 in to a giant Tetris Game. I saw it myself driving along the Charles River Saturday night. The building is tall and narrow with lots of little windows all in a perfect grid. Usually the windows are dark in the evening. But Saturday night, those windows were lit up in all different colors. I had to look twice, but yes, the lights were moving from top to bottom. What was going on? Then one of the kids in the car yelled, “It’s Tetris.” Of course it was. And the next words out of my mouth were, “It must be a hack!” Indeed. See the video below and read more about here.
