If you think running Doom on a kitchen bump bar is unusual, how about it running on a 1990s digital camera?
If you've ever worked in a commercial kitchen, you probably know what a "bump bar" is. These plank-like computerised boards are the organisational force behind every restaurant, enabling sweat-drenched chefs to see pending orders and ensure a steady flow of food to the front of house. Would it surprise you to learn that …
...about the bump bar running an industrial-esque X86 CPU and figured it'd only be a matter of time before Doom appeared on it.
In terms of running Doom on odd things, I ran Doom on a Rockbox-firmwared iRiver H320 (I think) some....oh god, knocking on twenty years ago it'd be now.
I'm getting old, I fear. It had to happen eventually I suppose.
PS: It was only borderline playable, but it was playable.
I also just found out today that there's an obscure Car only implementation of HDMI for cars (HDMI type E for the curious) installed predominantly on Japanese cars.... Of which I own a Japanese car with this mysterious socket installed.
So it's quite possible that not only could I run Doom but with the right cable get Crysis running as well.
That's never stopped Cupertino's lawyers before

One day may be Cupertino will get into kitchen appliances - then the lawyers will no doubt come out of their lairs.
