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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
