Kobo Touch Does Tetris

The Kobo Touch hacking community might be smaller than that of the Nook Touch, but every so often they do some amazing things.The following video was sent to me this morning. It shows a Python based Tetris clone running on a hacked Kobo Touch. It's the latest project of Kevin Short, and he's also gotten a Pong clone from Pygames running on the Kobo Touch as well.

The Pygames port might actually be the more interesting news here. That is a bundle of games, not just one. Thanks, Kevin!

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Too bad they won’t do an Android-based eInk reader — with a good CPU. I really prefer the Kobo design over Nook Touch. And if they did it as a tablet — with Kobo as an *app* — they’d steal all those Nook Touch sales to rooters. Imagine not having to root!

  2. Hey I have a question. (not sure if this is right
    Place to ask tho)
