John Badger from RetroMacCast shows off his replica retro Macintosh which he built using sheet PVC, a Raspberry Pi, and a screen with a resolution of 320×200. The Raspberry Pi runs Mini vMac, a Macintosh emulator for System 7 and earlier. Not only can it actually be used as a Mac, but amazingly, it was also built at one-third scale:
