This is a video of programmer Foone playing Doom on an electronic pregnancy test. Is he really though? Some more info while I run to the pharmacy, buy all the electronic pregnancy tests, then open my own video game cafe:
This is a replacement display AND a replacement microcontroller. I’m not using any of the original tester other than the shell.
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! (although I’m certain it will when complete)
Ah, so he had to replace the CPU and LCD to make it work. I wish I’d known that before *kicking CVS bag* buying all these pregnancy tests. Still, speaking of Doom on a pregnancy test– “Every time it shows up a plus.” Haha — and imagine two pluses! “That doesn’t mean twins.” Are you sure?
I tried zooming in and turning up the in-game gamma a bit, so you can see what's going on slightly better.
