Coin-Operated Chumby Web App #hackfriday

Marty McGuire of the Baltimore Node Hackerspace shared this neat coin-operated Chumby hack. Interfacing a Chumby to a coin slot is pretty cool all by itself, but the Super Mario coin sound takes it to the next level. Well done, Baltimore Node!

About #hackfriday:

If you’ve been following me on Twitter or Google+ today, you’ll notice I’ve been pushing this thing called #hackfriday. It’s sort a counter-movement to Black Friday. Personally, I think the idea of camping out in a parking lot just to be granted the “privilege” of spending your own money is a little silly. While I have nothing against shopping or commerce, I find the compulsive herd mentality that develops around the Friday after Thanksgiving to be demoralizing. I much prefer to stay at home and make something or work on a project — I suspect many other people feel the same way. So, if you’ve spent the day working on something cool, I encourage you to post it up in the next few days on Twitter or Google+ with the tag #hackfriday.

I look forward to seeing what you’ve made!

Happy #hackfriday, everyone!
