Finally, the TouchBar has a purpose.

Why is it that whenever a new piece of technology comes out, it instantly becomes just another platform for memes? Oh yeah, because memes are great. Here's a MacBook with a Nyan Cat on its TouchBar. 


When Apple announced it line of new MacBooks last month, it positioned the TouchBar as its primary selling point. But it's up to app makers and developers to actually find a useful way to implement the long slender touchscreen. 

One developer did just that, but his creation doesn't enhance any apps or make the MacBook any more useful; it simply adds a great deal of charm to the device. Instead of populating the TouchBar with links or shortcuts to various features, the bar is completely taken over by a colorful, animate Nyan Cat. 

The creator, Vatsaev Aslan, has uploaded the code to GitHub, so anyone with a new MacBook Pro can give their new, pricey notebook some adorable flair.

The battle over Nyancoin: How a cat meme inspired a cryptocurrency war
There is no plot or purpose to Nyan Cat. It’s just a weird little cat animation bopping along to a song, and the beauty is in the silliness. The drawing of a Pop Tart with a kitten head doesn’t stand for anything. But the aggressively goofy meme is now a mascot for a pocket of the growing world of cryptocurrency, and the ability to use Nyan Cat as a talisman for a movement inspired a fight between two teams of earnest cryptocurrency enthusiasts.
