Make Your Chromebook Do A Barrel Roll – AWESOME!!

Here is an awesome awesome Chromebook trick for you. An Easter Egg hidden in Chrome OS, makes it do a barrel roll.

Take a look at this video and tell me if you liked it.

I will tell you the keyboard shortcut after that. You will need the latest Dev build of Chrome OS for this… and thanks Jannik Lindquist again!…

Now, the keyboard shortcut >>Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Reload

update: this is not a true Easter Egg. There is a message displayed on the screen asking you to try this!  Thanks Ripps!

So, how is it? Now, go ahead and share this with your friends!!!

    I hardly consider it an Easter Egg if the First start guide tells you about the key combo. It doesn’t explicitly say what the it does, but it hints that you won’t regret it.

      uhmm, you have a point there….

      Yes it qualifies as an Easter Egg because you have no idea what you will find when you look. Surprise! That’s all an Easter Egg is. You’re thinking of an Easter Egg Hunt–they are more work than fun if you ask me. 🙂
      See example:

    Is it really a barrel roll or an Aileron roll?
