There are a few modded old machines. These range from Case Mod’s to full on emulation of an older system.

From Commodore 64 Computer Using Raspberry Pi

To Apple II

To TI-99 – RaspTI: Convert a Vintage Computer (TI-99/4A) into a RaspPi Workstation (One of my first Computers)

Modding keyboards for USB in old devices

Keyrah V2 allows you to connect the keyboards of classic computer systems like the Commodore 64 or the Amiga 1200 to modern computers (e.g. PC, Mac, or the Raspberry Pi***) via USB

Then onto Gaming Systems:

Then we have Emulation Station

And a cabinet that ships with that as a default Porta Pi Arcade (Kickstarter has almost shipped all units should be available on his site eventually)

Then comes the definitive all in one portable system case mod.

Pi2D2 – Wifi, Webcam, Video Projection, R2D2, and You!

Now this is portable gaming:

Emulation on the Pi is so much fun.
