Came across an article today about a geek who built the world smallest and yet functional Apple Macintosh computer. Being an avid fan of Apple and a Macintosh user long time ago, I’m rather excited and intrigued to find out about this little creation. The classic Macintosh computer was manufactured by Apple Inc. and was introduced on October 15, 1990. It was the first Apple Macintosh to sell for less than US$1,000. Production of the Classic was prompted by the success of the Macintosh Plus and the Macintosh SE.
Built by master crafter John Badger, it is indeed a working Mac and it’s a third the size you might be expecting. This build was done using a mixture of off-the-shelf parts and hand-moulded PVC – and a Pi. Pi or Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in schools.
