With the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tonight, we gathered around PocketC.H.I.P. to watch Episode IV in ASCII.
It’s an old internet trick to use telnet to watch Episode IV, but it’s so much cooler on PocketC.H.I.P.! Here’s how you can do it with your PocketC.H.I.P. and H/T to Pocketeer Meowter_space for reminding us.
Tap the Terminal on your PocketC.H.I.P. and type the following command, then press enter.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install telnet
Note: You’ll need an internet connection for this to work.
Use telnet to connect to the special Star Wars server.
Note: If the text is too big to properly display, use the minus symbol in the terminal to make it smaller.
