A Music App That Will Surely End Up as a Torture Device

Music can be used as a method of torture.  How long would you last if you were constantly subjected to “Call Me Maybe?”

A recent Music Hack Day in Boston resulted in an application that can extend any song indefinitely.  The Infinite Jukebox–“For When Your Favourite Song Isn’t Long Enough”–you (or your tormentors) can choose a mix of “Gangnam Style” that stretches to infinity.  

You can try it here.  But be afraid.  Very afraid.
