ASCII Star Wars Delivered Via Telnet

ASCII Star Wars

Now this is the swankiest geek presentation of the original Star Wars IV I’ve seen yet. Some creative peeps have turned the entire movie into ASCII art which is now available using Telnet. If you want to see it, open up the command line on your computer (Terminal on OS X, or “CMD” from the run option of your Windows PC) and type “telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl”. Hit enter a few times and sit back with some popcorn to enjoy the show. Speaks well to the power of good old ASCII text. If you are using IP V6, you get color!
