A cryptocurrency exchange in Japan reportedly experienced a temporary glitch last week that suddenly offered investors their pick of coins for the low, low price of zero dollars. Several customers took advantage of the opportunity, but one really ran with it.
Traveling during the holidays is already a nightmare, but for people flying American Airlines during the last two weeks in December, things may have just gotten a whole lot worse.
Kirua recently broke the world record for glitching through to the end of the game and now believes the best possible time is only a few seconds away.
I was just trying to sleep.
Things get weird on Mass Effect: Andromeda’s desert world of Eos when you start pushing the Nomad over 160 kilometers per hour. As several players have reported on Reddit, the glitch happens while zooming around the planet’s surface at high speeds.
Normally a glitch is a bad thing. Maybe it means your video game character gets stuck in a wall or maybe a glitch gets you wrongfully arrested. For an Australian man named Luke Moore, a simple bank glitch meant that he was able to blow $1.3 million on cars, travel, strippers and drugs over the course of two years.
Facebook users are reporting a bizarre bug that—like the video Year In Review or the persistent On This Day feature—dredges up digital memories. The only problem is that it’s doing so without their knowledge or permission.
In 2001's Paper Mario, our favorite hero in blue overalls saves the day, just like he always does. Peach helps, but in the end, it’s Mario who defeats Bowser. For years, however, speedrunners and glitch hunters have attempted to rewrite that sequence of events.
Speedrunners have long been exploiting 8-bit games by “reprogramming” them. Pixel-perfect inputs can be used to trigger memory events, usually for the purpose of beating games in fractions of the time it would ordinarily take. A similar exploit exists in the classic Mario Game Boy game 6 Golden Coins, but it exists in…
The great thing about Nintendo 64 games is that dedicated players are still finding exploits years later. But the true die-hards are discovering glitches that are purely theoretical.
Most perks in Fallout 4 are just supposed to give you a little boost, nothing major or almost game-breaking. This is not one of those perks.
Think you’re going to pay for Starbucks with your shiny new Apple Watch this evening? Think again. Starbucks computers are down across North America, and some stores are giving out free coffee in the meanwhile. I certainly enjoyed mine!
Something at Twitter has gone horribly, hilariously wrong: The social media site has unceremoniously declared us all to be robots. Well, maybe not all of us, but more than a few folks on Gizmodo staff as well as dozens of users across the web. Affected users trying to Tweet from Twitter's web client are being told…
It's something that most players wouldn't even think is possible: playing a game in a certain way that jumps you completely to the end, without beating its final battle. But there it is, just executed in Super Mario World.
GL II I I I I TCH. Sometimes a glitch is a catastrophe, yes, but sometimes these mistakes are beautiful. For this week's Shooting Challenge, you explored the photographic celebrations of the glitch.
“Så kan det gå” by the Swedish musician Alveola Ämting lays a tremulous vocal amid a light shimmer of broken static. Her granular sounds, a gentle if brittle smattering of nano-sonic fissures, give way as time passes to her halting, slow-paced intonation:
A pop electronica track built of stuttering glitchy goodness says much about the prevalence of glitch, the way the once disruptive musical approach has been subsumed into everyday, general-interest listening. It also says a lot about the whole idea of disruption in general. One day’s disruption is the next’s…
Ever been in a restaurant and found yourself entranced with the unfamiliar music playing on the stereo system — a glistening, lightly rhythmic piece of ambient pop — only to learn that it's a scratched CD of Chinese folk tunes or an old Whitney Houston album skipping from one nanosecond snippet to the next?
Furniture designer Ferruccio Laviani is creating this hand-carved storage unit so that it appears that you're looking at a warped image. Could you have this in your home without it driving you completely nuts?
