Doom: Now Playable On A TI-Nspire Calculator

Doom: Now Playable On A TI-Nspire Calculator

Is it really possible to play Doom...on a calculator? You may think that one would have just as good a chance at making that happen as ever seeing Duke Nukem Forever, but in the case of the former, it's a reality. Doom has found its way onto a Texas Instruments calculator, and the entire geek world is in a tizzy about it. The actual build is called nDoom, which is a modified version of the original that's designed to work on less powerful machines. The TI-Nspire is the calculator of choice, and while you may not expect such a device to have enough graphical power to truly pull this off, this whole thing is definitely a case of "you've got to see it to believe it." And that's why there's a video below. Good luck trying to replicate it, and remember, no Doom in class! Okay, maybe a little...

This is pretty cool...but I think the TI-Nspire is more than capable of playing the 17 year old title.

Doom System requirements: 80386 class CPU, 4 MB of RAM

The TI-NS2006A controller in the TI-Nspire is running at 90mhz, plenty of horse power!!

I'm pretty sure this has been around for a very long time. When I was in highschool we were playing Doom on our Ti-82 graphing calculators. It wasn't great but it worked.

Yeah... Old news. I was playing Doom 10 years ago on my TI-92 Plus.

Ti calculators are some old ass deliberatly crippled computers. Quite sad actually. Impressed at what the guys did to Doom, not what the calculator is capable of.
