Someone Programmed an Exercise Machine to Play Portal’s “Still Alive”


Every so often I encounter something on the internet I don’t really even know how to describe, and I just want the caption to be “why?”

This is one of those days, but I suppose I’ll go into a little bit more depth as to the hacked exercise machine that now plays “Still Alive” both in audio and text form.  The project took three days, and an entirely new CPU was jammed into the machine. All that work? Totally worth it, as this is perhaps the best useless bit of hacking I’ve ever seen.

Now, make me a microwave I can play Tetris on and we’ll be in business.
