Well, I had to add something for scale, so I decided upon an ancient wooden writing device that was also in use during the time of Quake, back in the 90s.

Now that I think about it, kids these days may not know the size of a pencil.... I guess I should have used something kids would be familiar with, like, I don't know, a pokemon card?

It looks so Quake-ish. That's awesome, Gunter. Love the pencil lol.

Appears to have a fitting color scheme, too.

Think I'd still have to get a bluetooth mouse, though.

Remember back in 1998, when we all wanted BIGGER stuff to run Quake on? Maybe we started out with a 13" monitor (I did), then upgraded to a larger 15" monitor, and later maybe we got a HUGE 17" monitor sitting beside our huge-ass tower computer.... Yeah, that was da bomb (as we used to say back in the 90s. Ok, I never actually said that. It was stupid).

Yeah, now in 2018, everything is getting smaller....

Here's my awesome Quake machine now!!


That would be QuakeDroid ( ) running on my 7" RCA Voyager Android 6 tablet (came with the keyboard case), with my iPega 9023 bluetooth gamepad attached.

Yup, even back in 1998, that would have been awesome!
