Doom "Running" on a Calculator

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm sure everyone has seen Doom run on a Nintendo DS or an old Printer, but I'm looking for an alternative choice. Texas Instrumental made a calculator that actually supports Doom 1 and 2, but in Black and white. Since I can't stand black and white, especially if I were playing Doom, I was hoping that one of you could help me get doom to run on, maybe a simple chipset or an extremely small computer. Here's the catch, though, it has to be mountable on the back of my calculator, which is a simple scientific calculator. I'm not inexperienced with coding and such, but I'm not a master, so I don't know where to start. If anyone can give me a few pointers - maybe even if this is possible or not, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Look up Raspberry Pi.
I'm not 100% sure what you're doing but it literally is a tiny PC you could mount on a calculator.
There are also smaller/cheaper ones from a few other companies.
You can install any OS, IRRC. They are also expandable via USB and there are pins that you can use for all manner of things...like making a simple robot or what have you.

That's basically what I was getting at, a mountable OS. Thanks, I'll check it out!

There are ones in the $10 range too.
Do some digging and post some results. wink.gif

I'm going to go with the Raspberry Pi B model, however I can't figure out where to find some custom controls. I was considering taking apart my old Gameboy Advanced for a screen and some controls. Would that work?

HP's 50g can run the first DOOM. There was a port for it.

The TI nspire CX can run Doom 1 and 2 in color, but it will only work on ones that are a few revisions old. I'm sure you could find one on eBay.
