Reddit user IAmAHiggsBoson stumbled onto a little easter egg on his oscilloscope: apparently if you press the right series of buttons, you can play Tetris instead of measuring voltages, or doing some other kind of boring "actual work".

So if you find yourself bored at work, you can follow the instructions in the imgur album he posted:

  1. Press the Print/Utility button
  2. Press the 2nd and 3rd monitor buttons together
  3. Play Tetris

You can even see it in action here:

And Redditor kryptkpr found a game called BUGS which they described as "basically Centipede with difficult to use controls":
