Tetris wall graphics let blockheads stick up bricks

Many world champion Tetris players claim to see falling bricks in their dreams (see: Tetris Effect). Now players of all skill levels can wake up to the puzzle game with their own Tetronimo wall graphics, thanks to a collaboration between Tetris and Walls360.

LAS VEGAS--Many world champion Tetris players claim to see falling bricks in their dreams (see: Tetris Effect), and now players of all skill levels can wake up to the puzzle game with their own Tetronimo wall graphics, thanks to a collaboration between Tetris and Walls360.

Walls360

Walls360 is a start-up co-founded by Tavia Campbell, John Doffing, and Yiying Lu, the artist responsible for the famous Twitter Fail Whale. Their wall graphics first caught my eye when they hosted a kick-off event two years ago to launch the company, and since then they've partnered with brands like Star Trek and Paddington Bear to create high-quality adhesive wall images.

Their project with Tetris brings the iconic video game alive in a range of sizes and colors, and each of the six sets feature 18 repositionable Tetrominos (the official name of the Tetris blocks) made of self-adhesive fabric paper. Unlike many of the wall murals you can buy online, the printouts aren't stickers and users can rearrange each of the 6- to 12-inch tall pieces hundreds of times without fear of damaging the wall or losing adhesive.

Check out this page for more details on how the Walls360 graphics work, and head to their Web store to pick up your own set of Tetris art for $39.
