Doom running on the MacBook Pro's Touch Bar is the latest hilarious 'Doom on dumb stuff' hack

Who says you can't run games on a Mac?

Doom

It’s an old philosophical question: “If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s an LED screen embedded in it for some reason, can it run Doom?” Okay, that metaphor got away from me, but the fact remains that there’s a time-honored tradition to “Running Doom On Technology That Shouldn’t Run Doom.”

In years past we’ve seen the 1993 classic running on a hacked ATM, on a Canon printer, on an oscilloscope, on a giant LED truck, and of course running inside another instance of Doom.

And now, even though it’s basically unplayable, YouTube user diffractive – b3ll got Doom up and running on the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar:

I’m not joking when I say it’s basically unplayable. The aspect ratio here is like 200:7 and you can barely see what’s happening. Nevertheless, this is clearly Doom running on a MacBook Pro Touch Bar. Maybe it’s not the must-have app that sends you running to the store, $1,799 in hand, but it’s still a cool party trick.

Though perhaps not quite as cool as when you bust out Doom on the ultrasound machine you keep in your living room.
