With advances in computing over the last 25 years, you can now emulate the Nintendo SNES on a Raspberry Pi Zero— much smaller than a single cartridge for the original system.
With the impending release of the Super NES Classic Edition, one Redditor has decided to make his own Pi Zero setup, complete with connectors for power, HDMI, and of course, an SNES USB controller sticking out of where the normal connectors should reside.
It looks like a very simple project to emulate (pardon the pun), hopefully using a plentifully available cartridge. As the gaming system shown here appears to be manufactured from a Super Metroid cartridge, the build’s originator is quick to note that it was actually made from a cheap hockey cartridge with a new label applied.
If you’d rather avoid the trouble of getting your hands on a Super NES Classic in September, perhaps this homemade mini console will suffice.
