Screw Your Elevator Buddies!

by on April 4, 2011

I’m not sure which would make me happier: hacking an elevator to get to my floor before anyone else, or seeing the other people’s expressions after I did so. Either way, elevators can be notoriously annoying and I’m up for anything that helps beat the system.

There’s an elevator hack that’s been floating around the internet. It seems pretty simple. Almost too simple. After doing a little more research, I found conflicting results. They vary from working, to only working on some elevators, to not working at all. I know you nerdists are super-sleuths, so I thought we could run two experiments:

Experiment 1: How fast can you DEFINITIVELY prove this hack does NOT work for ANY elevator

Experiment 2: Until experiment #1 is proven, let’s all try this today. I’d love to see the reactions of anyone getting floor-jacked!
