If you're a player of video games, you're probably aware of the "Konami Code" -- a "cheat" code that works on games produced by Konami Corporation (and some other non-Konami games).
TechCrunch reported it isn't the first time Google has harnessed the Konami Code:
When inputted into the Pixel Chromebook, the LED strip on the lid of the laptop puts on a light show by blinking a random series of colors. The infamous code also unlocks an achievement in Google Play.
If you know of any other hidden treasures (a.k.a., "easter eggs"), share them in the comments below.
