Raspberry Pi Macintosh Emulator: Little Mac
August 29th, 2014
Electronics shop Adafruit showed us how to turn the Raspberry Pi into a Game Boy emulator, complete with a Game Boy-like case. Now they’re using the affordable computer to make a device that looks and works like a classic Macintosh.
Aside from its instantly recognizable chassis, Adafruit’s Mini Mac Pi also runs System 7 aka Mac OS 7, thanks to a software emulator called Mini vMac. This enables it to run classic Mac apps, though it’s probably going to be a pain to work on its cute display. Another notable feature of the Mini Mac Pi is that its front and rear panels are secured by magnets, making it easy to assemble and repair.
