Brass Monkey Turns Your Browser and Phone into a Video Game System

And for our next trick, we will make a video game system appear out of thin air.

First, we’ll need some volunteers to go to the Brass Monkey website. While you’re doing that, make sure your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer.

Now pick a game, any game. There are 20 to choose from, so go ahead and take your time. We want you to be happy with your selection. (Our suggestion: Monkey Golf is a good place to start.)

Ready? Now download the Brass Monkey iPhone or Android app. Launch it from your device and tap the orange button to connect to the Brass Monkey network.

Viola! You’ve got a video game system. Your computer is the console, your phone is the controller, and each game is navigated by tapping, tilting, swiping, or swinging.

You might say it’s magic. We’ll just call it a feat of distraction.
