A Raspberry Pi-powered miniature Lego Macintosh is the best thing you’ll see all week

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone decides to build a working miniature Lego Macintosh and power it all with a Raspberry Pi.

There’s no shortage of awesome Pi bakes out there, but I haven’t been this enamoured with one in quite some time.

Programmer Jannis Hermanns not only made an itsy-bitsy classic Macintosh from Lego, he brought it to life with a Raspberry Pi Zero and a tiny e-paper display.

It’s hardly the same as using a 5K iMac, but it’s a vaugely functional mini-machine that runs the Docker open-source software platform alongside a service called resin.io.

Combined with the e-paper screen, the little beaut can do neat stuff like display basic images or be used as a clock. As far as labours of love go, I’m not sure I’ve seen anything better.

It’s a fairly technical project that involves some advanced coding – and soldering, if you haven’t upgraded to the Pi Zero W – but if you’re up for a challenge, Hermanns details the entire build over on his blog here.
