Funny thing, isn’t it? That you can watch some little blocks moving on an 8×8 LED matrix and recognize the first level of Super Mario Bros. buried in the squares?

Developed by a Carnegie Mellon student named Chloe for an Arduino class, the project is “a simple version of Super Mario Bros using an 8×8 LED matrix (one color), an Arduino Nano, two buttons for the input (forward and jump), and a piezo sensor hooked to a separate Arduino for the theme song.” Nice work, young lady. I give it an A++, the highest mark known to mankind.
