The Device Has Been Modified

the device has been modified So I saw this on Digg yesterday and wanted to post it, but decided I’d watch an extra episode Shakugan no Shana of instead. But here it is: The Device Has Been Modified (stream video). If you want to download the 100MB HD version of this, you should be able to find the torrent in the upper left hand corner.

This is actually a cross of a fan-made Portal Song and World of Warcraft video footage. I wasn’t too impressed by the the video footage (unless someone actually did the animation themselves), but the song was super catchy. To describe just how awesome the song is, I’ve accumulated over 8 hours for the past 2 days listening to this song at work and at home. It’s just been playing on repeat. As RayAlome says:

Ray AlOm3: lol
Ray AlOm3: you and ur quasi-portal music
Ray AlOm3: yea i was thinking you might like it
Ray AlOm3: it had that dramatic film quality

And I agree. The music has that sort of grandeur soundtrack feeling to it and I guess that’s what makes it so awesome. I don’t think the robotic voice really did much for me, but I guess if it wasn’t portal related, I wouldn’t have found it.

The best thing, the mp3 is available for download for FREE: Victims of Science – The Device Has Been Modified

Apparently the lyrics were taken from the Portal game itself and mixed with a dance song:

Hello,
Hello, and welcome to the enrichment centre
Hello, and welcome to the enrichment centre
Hello, your specimen has been processed
Hello, your specimen has been processed
Hello, your specimen has been processed
Hello, we are now ready to begin the test proper
Hello
Hello

Hello, there you are friend
Hey hey, hey hey hey, put me down
I don’t hate you,

Well you found me
Congratulations
Was it worth it

The only thing you managed to break so far
Is my heart
This isn’t brave
It’s murder
What did I ever do to you
You don’t even care, do you

Please proceed into android hell
Android hell,

Weighted storage cube, destroyed
Weighted storage cube destroyed
Weighted storage cube destroyed

Thank you for participating in this aperture science computer aided enrichment activitiy
goodbye
goodbye

Are you still there

Okay, I just watched the 720p HD version and I understand the scenes a lot better now. Hehe. As noted above, you can download the HD version by locating the torrent link in the upper left hand corner.

  1. The WoW machinima is meh (I torrented the MP4), but I love the song. Esp. the “welcome to android hell” part.

    > I don’t think the robotic voice really did much for me

    I love robot voices in songs. Like, the Joe Redifer stuff does it for me.

  2. I remember that Final Fantasy song! I guess the robotic voice adds to the awesomeness, I think even a regular female voice (as they have in techno/trance songs), that song would’ve been great.
