Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ready Player One looks like it’s going to be one of those movies we keep finding secrets and Easter eggs in years after its release. But it turns out one of the first has been hiding in the film’s official logo since it was released a few weeks ago. Do you see it?
“Old” is a very relative term when talking about computer history. By the looks of it, however, Radiohead hid a computer program on the tape that comes with the 20th anniversary edition of OK Computer, and making it work feels like time travel. That’s because you’ll need an ‘80s-era, 8-bit British computer, the ZX…
One of the dirty secrets about streaming live TV services like PS Vue and Hulu TV is that in many cases you’re paying the same amount of money as you would for basic cable. The main difference, besides the benefit of not dealing with a godforsaken cable company, is the crazy monthly fees local operators like to…
When Google’s engineers aren’t busy upgrading the serious stuff inside Google’s email apps or mobile OS, they like to leave little treats and games inside Google’s products—everything from humorous search results to hidden creatures. These are some of our favorites for when you’ve got five minutes or five hours to…
If you thought the funky tie-dye Easter egg designs you created last weekend raised the bar, you’ve got about a year to try and top what Jiri Zemanek of the University of Prague came up with. His Easter eggs feature looped animated designs that look like a Spirograph has come to life.
Artist Barak Hardley continues his annual tradition of painting a crap-ton of pop culture Easter eggs, and this year’s collection has a lot of laughs, a few tears, and punching a Nazi frog.
“I was torn between the irrational fear that someone else would stumble on and publish my 40 year old discovery before me, and the very real fear that when I did, no one would care.” Former Microsoft developer Ed Fries went on one heck of a journey to try and recreate one of the earliest easter eggs in video game…
“Through Imperial Eyes,” the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, was intense. Grand Admiral Thrawn began to uncover the identity of the Rebel spy Fulcrum and Ezra and Agent Kallus did their best to stop him. The episode also showed us that Thrawn is great at uncovering other things too. Just look around his office.
One of the most beloved theories of the internet over the past few years has been the “Pixar Theory”—the wild declaration that posits that every part of the Pixar animation oeuvre is part of the same universe. Disney has released a new video gathering every connection between Pixar films to date, and it’s the closest…
Wow, Rogue One! Not even out yet and you’re spilling out neat little Easter eggs already. Sneaky.
Google Home might be the smartest home assistant currently available, but when it comes to being personable that agender Assistant (with a distinctly feminine presenting voice) leaves a lot to be desired.
In a season five episode Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Enterprise crew falls under the spell of a dangerously addictive augmented reality game. That same game lies buried within mobile game Star Trek: Timelines, an easter egg so well-hidden only one player has uncovered it, and they don’t even know it yet.
The next Zelda game isn’t out yet, but eagle-eyed players are already finding all sorts of cool easter eggs.
How is a superhero movie supposed to appease die-hard fans while appealing to a new audience? Easter eggs, and lots of them.
I have a lot of sympathy for web designers and programmers. Although they slave away to create incredible software used by millions (or, at least, the good ones do), no-one ever really appreciates their work. Easter eggs are just a tiny portal into their world.
Painting up Easter Eggs is always fun, but what happens when you use Matlab and equations that spit out spirographic art? Some really awesome eggs.
There’s a pretty great easter egg hidden in Fallout 4, and it has some juicy implications about two of Bethesda’s biggest series.
It’s almost second nature for sci-fi to be self-referential—not just to itself, but to the wider pantheon of shows and movies. Doctor Who is no stranger to these references, but last week’s episode, “Face the Raven,” had one that was typically Doctor Who: An Easter Egg, hidden inside another Easter Egg!
Hey, did you hear there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out? In case you’re unclear on the details, Google’s new Search Easter Egg will help remind you.
