This bored gamer hacked his ecig to play a Flappy Bird clone

Electronic cigarettes are probably not going to provide a platform for mobile games in the near future — except this one.

Using an eVic-VTC Mini electronic cigarette, an enterprising gamer managed to hack the personal vaporizer to play the popular mobile game Flappy Bird on the built-in OLED screen.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

Balázas Bánk managed to use the upgradeable firmware to install a custom ROM of the game. The game is fully playable, and controllable using nothing more than a custom ROM and the existing hardware of the ecig.

If old school Nokia games are more your speed, Bánk also claims to have a working version of Snake.

It’s not as cool as Flappy Bird being coded into Super Nintendo hardware, but if you want to hack your ecig, Bánk has instructions here (Mega link).
