Awesome Retro Mini Mac Fits in the Palm of Your Hand
Posted on August 28, 2013 by eli courey
John Leake, co-host of the RetroMacCast podcast, built a 1/3-scale Macintosh 512k replica out of PVC, a Rasberry Pi and a 3.5-inch LCD. I’m amazed at how much it looks like the real thing….except much smaller.
The Mac replica is running an open-source Macintosh OS emulator on the Raspberry Pi. It also features an HDMI out port for connecting to a larger display, as well as USB and Ethernet ports. It’s pretty cool seeing MacPaint running on this tiny machine. Check out the video below for a demonstration.
