Nintendo might be bringing back the old NES in a petite new form, but you’d be surprized to find out that the world’s tiniest Nintendo console has already been made – and it’s actually a Raspberry Pi computer.

YouTuber Hugo ‘lyberty5‘ Dorison has built an awesome clay replica of the classic SNES using only a Raspberry Pi Zero computer and a USB hub.

Just like the real thing, the miniature NES clone is capable of running oldschool classics like Super Mario and Duke Nukem.
