The SNES Classic is a dream come true for retro Nintendo fans, but the reverse opinion is that you should just use a Raspberry Pi and call it a day for your emulation needs. This got me thinking: how does the NES/SNES Classic hardware compare to other single board computers being used for emulation right now and what does this mean for possible future classic consoles from Nintendo?
This video takes a high level approach to examining and comparing single board computer specs, original console hardware specs, console hardware that runs Nintendo’s Virtual Console and overall how emulation works and what we might see in the future.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
