One of the key features of the upcoming Xbox One is the ability to route another HDMI device like a cable / satellite box or even a PlayStation 4 through the console and watch said device using the Xbox One. But what would happen if you were to plug the Xbox One into itself?
As Kotaku recently found out, the results are somewhat beautiful. The publication split the HDMI signal coming from the Xbox One so they could output it to a television and back into the Xbox One for a never ending loop. It's kind of like what you see when you point two mirrors at each other.
Totally useless? Yes, but still rather neat.
