Play Quake 1 on an Oscilloscope

Pekka Väänänen must have been bored over the holidays, as he came up with a fantastic and fascinating new use for an oscilloscope and a laptop: playing a round of Quake on his Hitachi V-422 scope in X-Y mode.



After some pre-processing, apparently it’s a playable vectorized Quake game with a very unique display. Never seen anything like this before! Lots more details over on his site. Check it out!

    What on earth? This is like how Tetris was created, on a word processor no less. Simply genius.
