By coincidence: Inside this Can Depalletizer is a Street Fighter II Easter Egg (checks notes)
The widespread influence of video games means few links may appear anywhere… In movie. During a TV show. In books. Or, in the case of Capcom Street Fighter IIas a hidden screen on the can de-palletizing machine used in the brewing industry. Yes, you read that right.
Reddit poster Ronnie uploaded a video that shows him entering a combination of commands into Ska Fab HMI (Human Machine Interface) Nimbus Depallitizer and rewarded with a one-on-one screenshot of the famous Capcom fighter.
What kind of car is this, you ask? Well here’s the description, provided by Ska Fab:
Nimbus combines the best features of our two best selling machines to create a new low cost depalletizer optimized for small spaces and low speed applications. It expands on the advanced features of our patented turntable design by providing additional storage and the ability to fold and fold the turntable, further reducing machine footprint when not in use. This innovation, combined with Can-i-Bus’s pallet lifter and layering design, creates a compact and efficient can depalletizer with a dump height for excellent can lowering and a variety of dump angle options. This machine is virtually silent (no vibrator) and requires minimal space in the production area.
What is this image doing there? Well, whoever is in charge of developing the software that runs these machines is clearly a gamer of some sort.
