Mac fans are sure to want to build one of these awesome Wi-Fi enabled LEGO Macintosh Classic mini PC systems which is running Docker on a Raspberry Pi Zero displayed using an e‑paper screen.
Check out the videos below to learn more about this cute mini mac system. Its creator explains more about the inspiration behind the build and what is required.
While my son and I were playing with LEGO, after building a 1987 GMC Vandura and an off-road Segway I suddenly had the urge to build one of the first computers I remember using the 1990 Macintosh Classic.
I am not a 100% sure if it was this exact model or perhaps even the Macintosh 128K from 1988, but I guess it doesn’t really matter. All I did with that computer was play Shufflepuck Café. I went ahead and ordered a 2.7″ e-paper display from Embedded Artists. It arrived after a couple of days and I immediately started building a little fitting prototype in LEGO to see what dimensions the Macintosh would have in order to fit that display. But it looked so good in my mind! Well, the colored bricks don’t help – they should be in a uniform grey. So I looked for an alternative way to prototype LEGO and found Lego Digital Designer.
