Watch Star Wars in Mac’s Terminal App?

This could be the greatest trick on Apple Laptops which makes no particular sense but even; you should try it! The Death Star, R2D2, spaceships and the rest of the Episode 4 story retold in Terminal symbols and graphics will blow you away! but there is no sound… I wish they rolled the score on the bottom but I think I’m asking too much! :)

Prior macOS Sierra, open up Terminal, type in:

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl

On macOS Sierra and higher macOS versions, you should use a different command:

nc towel.blinkenlights.nl 23
