A working "Mini Mac"

John Leake has created a working 1/3 scale model of the original Macintosh.
I'm amazed that A: it took him only 12 hours to build it, and 2: It has two USB ports, an Ethernet port, and an HDMI port, and thirdly: it actually works, and runs the original Mac software! (in emulation of course) on the famous tiny English Raspberry Pi processor.

It's not for sale, but if it ever becomes, I'm sure there'll be lots of customers, and I can't swear I won't be amongst them.
