Honestly I think you are completely off base. The article you posted clearly states this is a hack in its second paragraph
"It's one thing to use "hack" to refer to anything crafty or resourceful. Appropriate even."

And what the guy did is crafty and resourceful using household materials to get a result that you usually need a commerce piece of equipment to get.

The act of the hack in this case is using ordinary household materials to get a desired result that replaces commercial machinery.

I knew some hippies who liked to hack in high school. Mighty fine footwork. Always thought thought they should've tried out for the soccer team.

You could cut the tension with a _____.

(whoever fills in the blank gets 1 free sharpening!) (for the low cost of shipping and labor!)
