    The guy behind Sufficiently Advanced has created a home automation system that responds to those little tunes you play in Ocarina of Time. He can use Bolero of Fire to heat up the house, Sun’s Song to turn on the lights, Epona’s Song to unlock his vehicle, and so on. The best part is how you can break into his house just by playing back Zelda’s Lullaby on your phone.

    OK, you think you like the Legend of Zelda? You don’t. Not compared to this guy. His entire goddamn house is ocarina-operated now, and if he forgets to bring a plastic toy instrument with him he’s probably locked out. So suck on that, I guess. Other than having to carry around an ocarina always and forever, my main concern would be forgetting and/or mixing up songs and overwatering the plants while I’m just trying to get the door unlocked. But hey, that’s what separates the real fans from the casuals.

    Part 1 just plays a smooth guitar duet through out the house. Don't get them mixed up.
