Project Blinkenlights has transformed the Bibliothèque nationale de France (in Paris) into what is claimed to be the world's largest computer screen. The 520 pixel display, called Arcade, consists of a matrix of 20 x 26 of the building's windows — resulting in a giant computer screen having an area… of 3370 square meters. Every night from now through October 5, Arcade will present an ever-changing kaleidoscope of animations and interactive apps including Tetris, which can be played by calling up the system from a mobile phone. Those of us not fortunate enough to be located in Paris can view the nightly antics of Arcade via a live Internet feed.
