If you need another way to lose countless hours on Wikipedia, Matt Inouye shows off the WikiRoulette, a website that lets you browse the online encyclopedia randomly simply by hitting the left and right arrow keys.

View a random Wikipedia page. Inspiration came from the book Algorithms to Live By. If you want to see a random Wikipedia page everytime you open Chrome, there's an extension for that (code is on Github).
