If Solitaire and Minesweeper have been stripped from all the computers at work but you're still after a discreet way to kill a few minutes, you owe a debt of gratitude to Jeroen Domburg who successfully hacked a backlit Coolermaster QuickFire Rapid-I mechanical keyboard to play the classic game of Snake—which you might remember from an old Nokia phone.

Sure, it's not as fun as most of the games on your smartphone, but playing Snake on this keyboard actually makes it look like you're still diligently working. That's the key here. You'll also have to supply your own keyboard since few companies provide hardware this fancy, but that's a minor inconvenience if it means you can put off writing up that TPS report for a few more hours.
