Tetris-Bot Plays Tetris Unassisted

Branislov Kisacanin has created a robot that has but one purpose – the play Tetris. As reported by Geek.com, the robot, called Tetris-Bot, was built using “NXT Lego, a TI DSP board running AI and vision algorithms, and a webcam.”

When combined, the DSP board processes the information coming in from the webcam, and instructs the robot’s “fingers” to perform the appropriate moves to play the game, using a standard computer keyboard.

What else really needs to be said? It’s a robot… playing Tetris. If your inner nerd isn’t at least somewhat impressed by this, then I don’t know what to say.

Check out the video below to see the bot in action:
