The “Detection Of Outstanding Mishaps” Machine – aka DOOM Machine – is the beating heart of the SPAM team. Built illegally by Dr. Hormel (since chronological manipulation technology was banned by the Academy of Super Science (ASS) in 1985) the DOOM Machine functions as the special device for SPAM. Huge and dangerous, it runs on experimental fusion by slamming chronotons together with specific algorithms designed to detect illegal activities by icons across the world.
It is, however, a very finnicky device, and one prone to error (as is the case with many chronological manipulation technologies). Dr. Hormel has not yet perfected its use, so the events that are detailed by the DOOM Machine are not accurately identified in their time stream location. Sometimes the events haven’t happened yet, sometimes they’re happening now, and other times they’re far in the future. Normally it’s off by only a matter of hours one way or the other, but not always.
