Doom is considered to be one of the most breakthrough and important computer games of all time, and its legacy has endured well into the 21st century. Just for fun, someone decided to see if it could run on a digital camera from 1998, and it turns out, not only can it run on it, you can actually play it!
Coming to you from Lazy Game Reviews, this fun video shows how you can install and play Doom on a digital camera from 1998. The original version of Doom required a processor with a minimum speed of 66 MHz, at least 8 MB of RAM, and at least 40 MB of space. Enter the Kodak DC260. This digital camera came out in 1998 and cost $1,000 at the time. It came equipped with a 1.6-megapixel CCD sensor, 3x optical zoom, and more importantly, a 66 MHz processor paired with 8 MB of RAM. Even more importantly, it had the rather unique capability to sideload apps. While the purpose of this was to allow developers to expand the capabilities of the camera, it also means you can do things like install games on it. Since the camera also has composite video output, you can even hook it up to a television to play on a larger screen. I always enjoy seeing how people can tweak and push technology into new realms, and this was a neat throwback to my childhood. Check out the video above to see it in action!
