Husqvarna on the DreamHack event:

Playing DOOM (1993) on Husqvarna Automower NERA robotic lawnmowers was a great success at DreamHack Winter 2023, which took place in Sweden November 24-26, 2023. DreamHack, famous for the Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) LAN party, is one of the largest networks of digital culture and entertainment festivals in the world. At the event in Sweden, Husqvarna arranged a DOOM (1993) Lawn party, probably the first multiplayer competition of the game on a non-gaming device. Qualifications were done using Single Player Time Trial, and the semi-finals and the finals were held on the main stage in the legendary Deathmatch Mode.
