From the day Doom (1993) launched and from the day the technology developed rapidly, gamers still find ways to bring Doom on all “platforms”. Doom has been successfully operated with PCs, toasters, digital cameras, pocket computers, Tesla electric cars, electronic money wallets and even… pregnancy test strips.

Play Doom on the pregnancy test.

But all of the above systems are mechanical, so is it a computer “running on foot“Is it possible to operate Doom? As it turns out, the answer is yes.

Professor Ethan Mollick at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania hypothesized: With 16 billion warrior crabs, with the scientific name Mictyris longicarpus, you will have a playable machine Doom 1993.

Mollick’s hypothesis is based on a scientific report made by researchers from Japan and the UK; In the report, the team of scientists discussed the possibility of running crabs inside a plastic model that would be similar to the way a logic gate works.

According to Professor Mollick’s calculations, it will take 80 crabs to operate a logic gate, each data byte has 8 ports, which means you will need 640,000 crabs to contain a Twitter status stream limited to 280 characters.

The logic gate runs by crabs.

Practical model of a crab-powered logic gate.

Ethan Mollick thinks that with enough logic gates, or in other words enough crabs, we will create enough memory for the system to operate Doom. It is estimated that this machine will need 16,039,018,500 warrior crabs, moved into a single body, to create enough logic gates for gaming.

The calculation is simple, finding 16 billion crabs, making it run so that I can play the new game is difficult. Nor can this be called a rice machine: Mictyris longicarpus is a special crab that can run straight ahead, and their diet is organic matter particles of organisms clinging to the surface of sand grains. . Stop calling this imaginary machine “crab-powered”.
