Quake running on an oscilloscope pushes boundaries

Quake Oscilloscope

What other devices will modders make games work on next?

In 2014 we saw the classic FPS Doom running on a printer screen, and even on the side of a truck and an ATM. But, just when you thought there wasn't any other device a classic FPS could run on, someone has made Quake work on an oscilloscope.

Oscilloscopes are used to measure electricity, but modder Pekka Väänänen from Finland has turned it into a monitor to play Quake. It kind of looks like a simple version of when Neo can see the code in The Matrix movie.

A breakdown of the process can be read over here, and a video showing the game running on the device is below.

Thanks, Kotaku.
