Sure enough, you can play ‘Doom’ on an ATM

Doom on an ATM

The quest to play Doom on just about everything won’t be over any time soon, it seems. A team of Australians has torn open and modified an ATM to play id Software’s classic first-person shooter using some of the bank machine’s built-in controls. This isn’t the hardest hack in the world — ATMs like this run Windows XP, after all — but it still required custom software and logic, including a circuit board that can remap buttons meant for deposits instead of demon slaying. What you see in the video below is just the start, too. The group already has the side buttons working for weapon selection, and it hopes to make the number pad usable. There’s also talk of tweaking the game to use the receipt printer; if you wanted, you could have it spit out proof that you finished a tough level. The odds of getting the hardware to recreate this feat are sadly rather slim, but it’s good to know that even your local ATM can handle some proper shoot-’em-up action.
