For those thinking of copping a Raspberry Pi Zero kit and loading them up with ROMs instead of purchasing the highly coveted SNES Classic Nintendo that was announced, you could always use the game cartridge as its case. Yesterday, a Redditor shared a “Frankenstein SNES creation“ of an emulator installed inside of an old SNES cartridge.

The cartridge/home system hybrid is complete with classics like Super Metroid and Super Mario World.
