Nook Simple Touch Hack Plays Sonic Better Than A Game Boy


The hack itself is not too difficult to pull off, given the Nook natively runs Android 2.1. But since the displays on e-ink devices are notoriously slow to refresh, it also requires the use of an app called NoRefresh to keep the action fluid. The results look surprisingly playable; there’s a slight delay with the controls, but that’s a small price to pay when it means you can enjoy a game of Sonic when you should be reading Sartre.
