Vocera Easter Eggs

Easter eggs are secret messages or jokes intentionally hidden within software code. The name borrows from the holiday ritual of Easter egg hunts, where children hunt for eggs that often contain surprises and treasures.

Users of the Vocera Badge can invoke Easter eggs by using certain commands. We’ve seen customers use them to defuse tension, to distract or calm children, or to just have fun.

To access an Easter egg, press the Call button of the Vocera Badge and say the command in the same way you would any other command.

Below are some of the more popular Easter Egg commands.
