Check out this incredible Mario Brothers mosaic art made entirely from thumbtacks! Students from the CIS Student Association at the University of Fraser Valley (British Columbia, Canada) spent two and half semesters putting the over 17,000 pushpins into position using a grid system. If you find yourself in BC, head on over to the Student Computer Center and check it out yourself. Nice work guys!
