If the title of this story reminds you of an Onion story, that’s because this story could easily be on the satirical site’s front page. And yet, it’s totally true and totally awesome. The story started when Balazs Bank got an eVic-VTC Mini e-cigarette, which has an upgradable firmware. And, as would anyone, he knew that what was missing from his vape was the infamous mobile phenomenon, Flappy Bird. So, he used some magic (software skills) to port the game and, as the video shows, Flappy Bird plays surprisingly well on that vape. Reminds me a lot of this other story we wrote a few weeks ago where someone had Flappy Bird running inside a Super Mario World on a Super Nintendo. Yeah, crazy stuff.
Now, the question is how would you go about it: would you vape and have someone else play, or try and do both and increase the challenge of the already-insanely difficulty Flabby Bird? I don’t know, but it’s moments like these when I realize that humanity should feel hopeful for its future; with such ingenuity and with our skills and brainpower put to such great use, how can we not continue to thrive on planet Earth?
