The Raspberry Pi may only cost $35, but people seem to be doing amazing things with this small board. One person has built a working Super NES out of it.
Waterbury of Fermilab had the idea back in 2004. The Raspberry Pi is a small board that’s a complete, Linux-based computer intended to give kids a cheap computer of their own that they can mess around with. All they need to do is add a keyboard and mouse, and plug it into a TV. It’s a spiritual successor to the old 8-bit computers from the ’80s.
The Raspberry Pi here is running an SNES emulator, and even accepts SNES games through the cartridge slot in the console case. A video shows the completed system playing “Super Mario World” from a cartridge and “Super Mariokart” from the machine.
