Let’s keep the Doom train rolling! Have you ever heard the old adage that Doom can run on anything? From supercomputers to calculators it seems that the original ripping and tearing simulator is capable of running on anything with a working CPU. Well it seems as though thanks to a lovely tech enthusiast, Foone Turing, this may have been taken to new heights as they were able to run Doom… on a pregnancy test… yes you heard that right.
I’ll embed the video below but essentially it’s running on the small CPU inside of advanced pregnancy tests and uses the small confirmation screen to let you see the visuals, amazing stuff. Now of course there were some modifications to get this running but otherwise apparently the hardware inside of these devices is actually rather advance and a bit of a waste that it’s a one-time-use item that you throw away afterwrds, shame. Still this is an impressive achievement and I highly encourage you to watch the video and enjoy the strangeness of seeing Doom being played at an even lower resolution than normal.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
