'Quake' Running On An Oscilloscope, Just Because

There's an old joke on the internet - 'Does It Run Doom?'.

The joke is that the answer is yes, because almost everything - if it has a screen and a processor - runs Doom. The Acorn Archimedes? Runs Doom. The SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player? Runs Doom. So on, ad nauseum.

Well now someone has upped the game - first by taking the fight to Quake, Doom's full 3D successor, and second by making it run on an oscilloscope. You know, the machine that can tell if people are alive or not.
