Developer late run Quake on an oscilloscope




A developer has managed to get Quake acting on an oscilloscope, a device which normally variations are measured in voltages. The maker has released a demonstration video.

On his website explains Pekka Väänänen how he Quake installed on the oscilloscope. He first wrote a simulator Processing that can run on the measuring device: therefore the required lines in the image rendered. The required code is released under an open source license and can be downloaded from Github. There were also required several operations to the objects of Quake to convert to lines on the oscilloscope, which Väänänen describes on his website.

In a demonstration video shows how Väänänen Quake can be played on the oscilloscope. The video shows the game as far as possible, work well on the device. However, the author is dissatisfied with the performance: only 1000 lines would be shown at the same time. Speed ​​up drawing lines the quality would not benefit, says Väänänen. The used model is a Hitachi V-422.

Väänänen has several other hobby projects to his name. So did he ever put a lego robot that can play the drums based on a melody. The robot can improvise.
