MIT researcher proves you could output Doom on a bacteria-powered 1-bit display, and it’d only take 600 years to beat

First reported by Engadget, MIT bioengineering researcher Lauren Ramlan broke new ground in the ongoing quest to run Doom on everything. In a paper and accompanying video for a semester project, Ramlan proposes running Doom through a 1-bit display of bioluminescent E. coli capable of displaying the game at just shy of three frames per day.

First, a quick clarification on “running” Doom⁠—this is a project focused on displaying Doom in an absurd and nontraditional manner. Like Sam Chiet’s Doom in Microsoft Notepad, you’d still need a more traditional computer to output the Doom itself, it’s not those E. coli making the calculations.
