Which Google Product Includes A Nod To Sci-Fi Classic The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy?
Answer: The Chromecast
Tech companies love Easter Eggs, and Google is no exception. If you flip over the Google Chromecast, their wireless HDMI video dongle, and scrutinize the model number, you’ll find an Easter Egg hidden right there in plain sight.
The official model number of the Chromecast is H2G2-42. The first half of the model number is fan shorthand for the title of Douglas Adam’s iconic Sci-Fi novel “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”. The 42 is a nod to one of the bigger jokes in the novel: an alien race builds a massive super computer, greater than all super computers that preceded it, to find the answer to the ultimate question of life and the universe. After thousands of years of calculation, the computer responded “The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is 42.”
