Never Try Playing DOOM with Your Porsche 911

Playing DOOM and driving may not be the safest thing to do. But according to software engineer Matt Swarthout a.k.a. Vexal, there is a way to actually play the game on the computer display of a Porsche 911, and using the car’s steering wheel, pedals, horn, and gear shifter to control the game.

According to Swarthout’s obviously suspect video, you can easily modify a Porsche 911 or any other vehicle to run the classic first-person shooter thanks to the car’s onboard computer. You don’t need to be an engineer and it will only take you a few minutes. Supposedly, this will work with many different cars built-in the last couple years, but you should really do it on a Porsche, just because.

What’s up with the toaster? Well, Matt created a tutorial in 2015 on how to modify a toaster to control PC games. The Porsche is a step up for sure.
