Wow. It actually works. ????

It actually works. ????

Curated via Twitter from Mashable’s twitter account….

Foone, a programmer who likes reverse-engineering things and typically works with ancient hardware and software, has managed to run a fully functional game of Doom on an electronic pregnancy test.

Foone is cheating a little; he had to replace the pregnancy tester’s CPU and LCD, essentially turning it into a much more powerful computer (still extremely simple by today’s standards, but compared to a pregnancy test or a computer from the early ’80s, it’s pretty powerful).

After posting a video of the classic video game running on the tester over the weekend, on Monday Foone upped the ante and released a video of him actually playing Doom on the tester, using a wireless keyboard.

The experience isn’t very pleasant because the pregnancy test has a 128×32 pixel monochrome display (see close-up below), but, amazingly, it works.

But as I explained then, it wasn’t really PLAYING on a pregnancy test, it was just a video being played back, not an interactive game. Well, now it is.

Yesterday I had a lot of retweets and reddit posts and such for playing Doom on a pregnancy test.
