Macintosh Classic and Raspberry Pi join forces to become a NES arcade machine

It's amazing what you can do with a few bits of tech, a bit of time and the drive of your inner geek

Reddit user MungoBBQ has managed to cram a NES arcade machine into the body of an old Macintosh Classic, tickling the fancy of our inner geek and making us rather jealous at the same time.

Powered by a Raspberry Pi and compatible with the fabled NES controller, the only disappointment is the fact that the original CRT screen had to be replaced by a modern offering, as melted chocolate corroded the internals of the old screen. Ouch.

Now if you’ll excuse us we’re off to cram an Ultrabook into a dot-matrix printer, connected to an 8mm film projector. Take that, internet.
