There's a Pong tournament on a Philly skyscraper tonight

That's one big-ass screen

Gamers are capable of doing some awesomely odd stuff for the sole purpose of saying they did it. A Drexel University professor is taking that concept and raising the bar. He's raising it 437 feet, to be exact.

On April 19 and April 24, Dr. Frank Lee will host a Pong tournament on the north side of the Cira Centre in Philadelphia as part of the annually-held Philly Tech Week. The 29-story skyscraper has hundreds of built-in LED lights which will depict the paddles and ball.

The tournament will be limited to less than 100 people, and all of the spots are currently filled. The event kicks off at 8:00 p.m. both nights, and is scheduled to go on regardless of weather conditions.
