From the article:
We decided to go small-scale and use the Game Boy version of Tetris as a measuring stick (35 million or so people consider it to be the definitive version of the game, after all). To figure out how large—or, in this case, small—the pieces from this version would be in real life, we measured the Game Boy screen, then counted how many pixels (the basic elements of it) the blocks took up.
Each of the four cubes that would comprise our Tetriminos (since they need to be in three dimensions) ended up being 8 pixels square. That meant that our narrowest piece would be the “I” at one cube wide vertically and the widest would be the “I” at four cubes when turned sideways. Based on the size of the screen, the cubes were a diminutive .097 inches on each side. To give you some perspective, the “O” would be only .679 x .679 inches if brought into the physical world.
Next, we needed to figure out a standard building block we could use to construct the walls of our Tetri-abode. To do that, we calculated how many of our Tetriminos would fit into a 1-foot by 1-foot by 8-inch (the depth of a single-layer brick wall) space—while using as large a variety of the pieces as possible (after all, we could’ve just gone with all “O” pieces and called it a day, but what’s the fun in that?).
