Step 1: Procure all materials.
- Procure all materials. You will need:
- A lot of Tetris pieces
- A clock that is fully operational and in good condition (you can buy one at the store)
- Lots of electrical equipment, such as wires and switches, which you can also find at the store
- Wood to make your tower sturdy and safe to climb on (you might have this lying around your house already)
- Glue (Aunt Sally’s Glue-All works well) * Paint (any brand will do)
Step 2: Assemble the tower.
The next step is to assemble the tower. You want to make sure that it’s sturdy, tall enough to see from far away, stable, and aesthetically pleasing. If you’re going for functional as well as functional, then you’ll want your tower to be easy to build (and transport).
Step 3: Add some electricity.
To make the clock display more visible, you’ll need to add some electricity. You can use a battery holder to make it easier to connect the battery. The battery holder will hold two AA batteries and make sure they’re connected properly so that they don’t short out your device or ruin it in any other way.
Once you’ve got yourself a new circuit (a clock with power), it’s time for step 4: mounting!
Step 4: Add another layer of Tetris blocks.
You will need to have a minimum of 20 blocks in order to complete the tower. Remember that you are building from the bottom up, so you need enough blocks at the base for your structure to be stable.
Step 5: Move the clock to a location with high visibility and take lots of Instagram photos.
- Make sure the clock is visible to the public.
- Take lots of pictures of the clock tower and post them on social media.
- Use the hashtag #clocktower
You can make a stylish clock tower out of Tetris pieces.
We all know that Tetris is a video game, but did you know that each of the shapes in a Tetris game have names? They’re called “tetrominoes.” And while they are only used to make blocks and lines in the game, they can be used to build things. Like a clock tower!
First, get your hands on some tetrominoes. You can buy them online (check out this site) or make your own by cutting cardboard into shapes and gluing them together.
If you want something fancier than just a big boxy block for your clock tower, consider making several smaller towers around it like I did with mine (see photos above). You can also use other building materials—like Legos or K’NEX rods—to add detail to your creation if desired; just be careful not to hide any of the clocks in its walls!
If you’re looking to expand your collection of building blocks, or just want a fun project to do with your free time then Tetris is exactly what you need! A classic game that has been around since 1985, this puzzle has been played by millions of people all over the world. You can find Tetris in any store that sells toys and games, but if not you can easily find it online.
