ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A student modified this gym machine's CPU to play the theme song from Portal. Modding unlikely machines to play Portal is kind of a thing!
keep on jogging ’til you burn off that cake.
I have the biggest smile on my face right now
Great hack. But… ok, the highest parts of the tune have been moved an octave lower, which I can understand, because in the original register they might have been out of range. BUT THE LOWEST NOTES ARE AN OCTAVE TOO LOW! does not compute…
i’m not a musician, but doesn’t it make some sense to try to maintain the same dynamic frequency range?
I’ve never been much good with words, which is why I find myself in such a delicate conundrum. My English is, how you say, inelegant.
well, i have dabbled in the holophonor.
I had a really difficult afternoon. That my submitterated thing made the page just gave me a MUCh needed smile– just like the video in the first place. :-)
Cybex you are my only friend.
Just went to Amazon and bought MP3 Still Alive. Good night.
I just played that with my infant sleeping behind me and she seemed to like it. Now I’d really love to have a GlaDOS-shaped wind up music box for her crib…
