It never ceases to amaze me the things that people can turn into musical instruments. I’ve seen and posted about everything from floppy drives to hard drives and electric toothbrushes being used to play iconic and geeky music and this is another new one for me, credit card machines. This time we have the Super Mario Bros theme played on credit card machines! And it sounds better than you would suspect!
This video comes from the awesome YouTube channel Device Orchestra which takes devices like credit card machines and wires them up to be used to play music. In the past, I have featured one of their creations where they played the Legend of Zelda theme on toothbrushes (which is totally worth checking out too if you haven’t seen it already) and this one is just as awesome even if the googly eyes aren’t included this time.
Seeing the Super Mario Bros theme played on credit card machines gives me the urge to play some classic Super Mario Bros. Even after all of these years, I still play Super Mario World a few times a week at least but its not often I play the NES Super Mario Bros. I love the game and the music but it does feel a little basic since you can’t do things like pick up shells which you can at least do with Super Mario Bros 3. Anyway…
