Take a look at this superior 1/5 scale mannequin of MZ-80Ok which is powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero and a tiny 1.5″ TFT display screen giving this retro miniature a very fashionable improve.
The tiny machine is powered by a 2000 mA LiPo battery and is supplied with a couple of additional parts equivalent to an Adafruit Powerboost 500 and LiPo charger.
This miniature itself was made in 1981, just some years after the MZ-80Ok – a tape-based machine with a 2 MHz CPU, 20 KB of RAM, and a built-in monochrome monitor – hit the market. The miniature has since been upgraded with some fashionable parts together with a Raspberry Pi Zero W and 1.5″ TFT display screen giving this retro miniature a contemporary improve – I particularly dig the hand-painted keyboard keys and the glowing inexperienced operation LED on the entrance panel!
