Really, how small and obscure can we go along with Doom? We’ve already seen it working on motherboard BIOS, in addition to 100 kilos of moldy potatoes—hopefully in a really properly ventilated room. We’ve even seen the game managed by a rotary phone, of all issues.

These little Lego consoles have been the topic of an abundance of microelectronics tasks too, together with a considerably bigger, old-school Lego area laptop that basically works. That one did not run Doom sadly, however it was solely a matter of time earlier than the 2 concepts met on this lovely marriage of our most beloved childhood joys.
