Now You Can Play DOOM While Doing Your Banking

If you pay attention to these sort of things, you’ve no doubt seen plenty of odd pairings of games and hardware. With modders using everything from calculators to old arcade cabinets to showcase their prowess, it might not surprise you to see a team of Australian modders modify an ATM to play the classic FPS DOOM.

Granted, the ATM running Windows XP by default makes this a bit easier than you may think, but it’s nonetheless an impressive feat. According to the modders, they use the, quote, “OEM PC and display, plus an i-Pac controller for mapping the side buttons, and eventually, the PIN pad.”

This is about the only good thing I’ve ever heard being done with an ATM, since almost every time I hear about them in the news it’s usually about card skimmers. Now maybe we can get the industry on board with this and I won’t get so upset when the wife wants me to go to the bank and take out money.
