This LEGO Macintosh Classic is Powered by a Raspberry Pi and an E-Paper Display

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


One of the most remarkable things about the Raspberry Pi isn’t just in what it’s capable of doing—but how affordable it is. As a result, many users never think twice about building out fun side projects—many of which are some of the best examples of the single-board computer in-use.

The LEGO Macintosh Classic with e‑paper display is one of those projects.

Created by programmer Jannis Hermanns as a birthday present for a friend, the Wi-Fi enabled LEGO Macintosh replica runs Docker (via resin.io) on a Raspberry Pi Zero with an e‑paper display. While it’s not quite the original Macintosh Classic of yore, it’s a spectacular example of what the Raspberry Pi is capable of in the hands of a user with a little creativity and inspiration.

“While my son and I were playing with LEGO, after building a 1987 GMC Vandura and an off-road Segway I suddenly had the urge to build one of the first computers I remember using,” explains Hermanns.

After building a prototype with his son’s colored LEGOS, he used LEGO Digital Designer to rebuild the model in order to determine the appropriate pieces to order in white.

Of course, fitting an e-paper display and powering it all up with a Raspberry Pi is no walk in the park, but Hermanns has documented his entire build process for anybody that wants to take the deep-dive for their next weekend project.
