Maker modifies piano into the perfect DOOM controller

Play DOOM the easy way on this modified piano

| Posted: Sep 18, 2013 1:02 am

Out of the hundreds of hours I spent playing Doom, I never felt an urge to use anything other than a keyboard and mouse to play. Fortunately for our viewing pleasure, a maker named David Hayward thought that it would be fun to play through the original game using a piano as the input controls. Yes, you heard that right, he hacked a piano into the controller for Doom. If you're still having a hard time comprehending this, the video below should help you out.
