There are loads of things you can do with your Raspberry Pi, once you’ve actually got it in your hands that is. You could turn it into a media centre; use it as a mini web server; build a NAS for streaming media with it, or even pack it full of emulators for the ultimate all-in-one retro-gaming machine. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
Andy Taylor from the UK Computer Museum has used his spare time to port over Fuze, a ZX Spectrum emulator, complete with Manic Miner. While I’m only just old enough to remember the tape-playing Spectrum, even I’ve played Manic Miner in one form or another.
I can’t wait to see what happens when people get set about porting over emulators for the SNES, Mega Drive and even maybe the N64 to the Pi – it really could prove to be the best plug-and-play retro gaming system ever, and for only £22-odd too. [Raspberry Pi]
