It seems you can play id Software's iconic shooter Doom on just about anything according to a team of Australians (via Engadget), who have torn open and modified an ATM to play the classic first-person shooter utilising the machines controls.

Software-wise this hack isn't exactly a difficult feat, with a majority of ATMs like the one featured in the video below running Windows XP. That isn't to say it wasn't easy though, with the team requiring custom software and hardware, including a circuit board that would interpret typical ATM deposit commands into demon slaying.

Check it out in action below, though you'll notice that the ATM hack still has a fair way to go, with the number pad and side buttons still needing mapping. The group also mention the possibility of using the receipt printer, though the odds of getting that working are probably rather slim.

Am I the only one thinking big deal?

Kinda thinking the same. It has that "Huh, that's kind of cool" and then never think about it ever again type vibe.

Not as cool as those people who rigged a skyscraper's lights to a computer and played Tetris on it.
