World’s smallest Mac (clue: it’s a Pi)

A short post today: I’m running around getting ready to go to the airport. Yesterday, I found this piece of downright splendour at Cult of Mac.

It’s made by John Leake, from RetroMacCast. And it’s a working Mac, only it’s a third the size you might be expecting. There is (of course) a Pi in there, running a System Software 6.0.8 emulator under Raspbian.

“Mac Mini” suddenly has a whole new spectrum of meaning.

This build was done using a mixture of off-the-shelf parts and hand-moulded PVC – and a Pi. You can hear more about it at this week’s RetroMacCast – I want to find out if there’s anything that fits into the 1/3 size floppy disk slot.
