Doom is now playable on pregnancy tests

Believe it or not, someone ported the original Doom game from 1993 to a pregnancy test. A video from Twitter user foone shows the game running on a 128x32 pixel monochrome display.

One of the most iconic games of all time, 1993 Doom has been ported to all sorts of hardware. From old cameras to Windows Task Manager, people have been experimenting with Doom's code for quite some time now, creating the most absurd versions, ever seen in gaming.

And while all these ports have been quite impressive, the latest one from Twitter user foone will certainly take the crown as the most unusual one yet. As you can see in the screenshots and the video below, foone managed to port Doom to a pregnancy test. Yes, you read that right, it's 1993 Doom running on a pregnancy test.

foone explained that the game is running on a 128x32 pixel monochrome display, which is not ideal at all but still, it's a great feat by the programmer. 

If you're wondering how exactly is this pregnancy test able to run the game, well, foone did some custom work on the hardware. He replaced the stock CPU and LCD, which was able to show only 4 things.

"The existing CPU can't be reprogrammed and the existing LCD can only show 4 things, so I had to replace both to make any changes. And the current version doesn't even fit into the shell," he explained. 

You can find more videos, photos and insights in the whole process on foone's Twitter.
