Playing flappy bird on an e-cigarette

In early 2014, it seemed like at least half the world was addicted to a simple free smartphone game that involved piloting a bird around obstacles. That description belies Flappy Bird’s viral impact. It was downloaded many millions of times and sucked up hours and hours of its fans’ lives. It’s had an eventful existence, though it’s not nearly the phenomenon it once was.

YouTube user Balázs Bank uploaded a video of an eVic-VTC Mini e-cigarette on Sunday. The device comes from vape maker Joyetech and is notable because it has upgradable firmware. So Bank did what any reasonable vape user with software skills would do: he ported Flappy Bird to his vape.

The Super Mario-style Flappy Bird works surprisingly well on the tiny e-cigarette screen. It’s in black and white, but simple up-and-down controls are all you need.

Bank included a link to the firmware file for fellow vape users. “Flash this firmware at your own risk. I will not take any responsibility for damaging your device,” Bank notes in the video description.
