 Turn a Raspberry Pi into the ultimate emulator - tech
(hx) 09:46 AM EST - Jan,20 2013
RPI Chameleon, a great new project from Carles Oriol, enhances the Pi's time machine like quality, by letting it run emulators for a whole batch of ancient hardware, including the IBM Personal Computer, Atari 2600, Apple II, ZX81, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, and Oric-1. It can even run MAME, the arcade emulator, and you can add additional emulators to its menu too. Described by Carles as a "Raspbian remix without the X graphical environment that uses its own launcher to run emulators for old computers, arcades and consoles", the RPI Chameleon is easy to set up and use and you can download a torrent of the required image directly from the Chameleon website.

One box to rule them all, avoiding all the clutter and mess (a dozen power bricks, boxes and the need to switch cables).
Precisely why nobody needs a console and why people try to jailbreak current boxes.
I wonder when current vendors are going to realize that.

Because its to do with the likes of Apple suing Samsung etc over [u:a63424a8ca]copyright[/u:a63424a8ca]. That is the reason why everything is locked down. Not consoles by a long shot. Every mobile has been rooted to get rid of bloat and generally improve the device. Consoles are jailbroken for piracy, big difference... Consoles cost pennies now, so there is no reason.
It's not like someone (cleverly) takes an Xbox,ps3 and hooks it up to pc's innards to get the best of both worlds, do they? Unlike the heady days of the Amstrad having a Sega genesis/Mega Drive port on its front. :wink:
The Pi still has to be careful with ROMs, great for bedrooms but no way would any of it become commercial. Someone owns them.
So it goes full circle..

Let's settle on this: it's an untapped potential.
Why it remains untapped is irrelevant.

While this is cool, I have a thumb drive like usb stick (mini-pc) running Android and I got access to all my android stuff as well as running xbmc for all my media. My HTPC has been gathering dust for 2 weeks now.

Nice, but I would not trust Android; far too many security issues for my taste.
