Playdate can play Tenet and other movies with the use of the crank!

For the uninitiated, Playdate is an atypical video game console developed by Panic and which can be used via a crank. Unveiled on May 22, 2019, the device came out just a few weeks ago (April 18, 2022). The main feature of the console is its essentiality, with a retro touch and a one-bit black and white display. It would therefore be unthinkable to use Playdate to play a movie, right? Well someone has succeeded.

Do we watch Tenet crank on Playdate? Why not

A Twitter user called jae just yesterday (May 2nd) shared a video of him watching Tenet on the Playdate console. “I finally started looking at Tenet the way Christopher Nolan intended. What an incredible movie ”wrote the user, who rewinds a scene in the movie using the special Playdate crank.

“I’m sure I’m the first (at least I couldn’t find anyone else), but I’ve also made Bad Apple work and this is absolutely the perfect display for watching movies,” jae said in a follow-up tweet. It must be said that the visual and sound experience is certainly not optimal, but we like the crossover a lot.

It is very reminiscent of that electronic music artist who decided to release his album on a Nintendo 64 cassette. Or that user who used a wheel phone to play Doom.
