This Teeny Tiny Clay SNES Actually Works [Video]

untitled-1

Building an emulation system out of a Raspberry Pi? Awesome. Making the form factor as tiny as possible? Super cool. Making that tiny form factor look like an itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny little Super Nintendo? YES. Did I mention it was made of clay? Holy crap.

YouTube person lyberty5 took the, ha ha, lyberty (No? Okay.) of building a miniature Super Nintendo out of clay that actually plays SNES games. Using a Raspberry Pi Zero as the base and adding a USB hub, lyberty5 mounted the entire thing in a clay body which was then hand-sculpted to look just like the international model of the Super Nintendo console (as opposed to the boxy gray brick American version).

It’s a beautiful bit of precision-engineered emulation awesomeness, and you can check out how it was made in the video below.
