An engineer built a mini-screen into a LEGO piece and played DOOM on it
Earlier this month, engineer James Brown made a mini computer with a real screen that he placed inside a 3D printed LEGO piece. He was trying to recreate terminals from constructor sets in this way.
The author used a 0.42-inch OLED display and a small board with an Arm Cortex M0 processor. He was even able to run an endless corridor demo on this “computer”. And now Brown was able to play the original 1993 DOOM on the small screen. True, the game itself was launched on another device, and the mini-computer was used only as a display.
While that one cures, I added the trench run and got capacitive touch working in the studs. pic.twitter.com/dxzEw2uDI9

Previously, we recall that DOOM was played using a landline phone.
😱 The challenge to launch DOOM on everything that comes to hand continues
I wired the brick up as a very small external monitor, so you can, for instance, play Doom on it. pic.twitter.com/uWK2Uw7Egr
