Relive Jurassic Park’s Iconic Hacking Scene Right From Your Browser

For the most part, Jurassic Park isn’t the kind of movie you’d want a chance to live out, what with the mortal danger and velociraptors and all that.

Thanks to this little Javascript/HTML5 toy programmed by Tully Robinson, you too can experience the wild frustration of being screamed at in pop-ups for not having said the magic word .

Jurassic Systems itself is a little bit of a one trick pony — the terminal has about five actual commands, and you’ll be hard-pressed to do anything but get yourself locked out.
