Have you ever felt limited in the answers you've received from a magic 8 ball? Inventor Jason Poel Smith did, so he found a way to hack a standard 20-result prediction toy to give up to 60 customizable fortunes.

As a part of his Indestructibles series, Smith created a video showing how one could make their own DIY digital magic 8 ball. He does this by replacing the fortune telling die inside the toy with a digital picture key chain. He created his own images or fortunes that would display instead of the original options. To try this project on your own at home, you'll require a large variety of tools.

This digital hack is definitely one way to bring this classic toy into the 21st century.
