IIRC, that guy just replaced the internals with ones that could run Doom, sadly.

>As Turing explains, the test's "existing CPU can't be reprogrammed and the existing LCD can only show 4 things, so I had to replace both to make any changes. And the current version doesn't even fit into the shell! (although I'm certain it will when complete)."

It isn't running on the hardware from the pregnancy test at all. It's just a computer that may or may not fit inside of the test.
