Gigglebit: Twin Peaks, NES style

15 Aug 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Twin Peaks gained fame as David Lynch’s murder mystery masterpiece not only for its pretty interesting story, but also the bat-sh** craziness of the scenes through the show.

Of course, in true 1990s fashion, someone has taken the painstaking effort to recreate the opening scene as a Nintendo video game. Genius.
