Some baller used a Raspberry Pi to play YouTube on the Commodore PET

Who knew it was possible to play YouTube videos on a Commodore PET? The PET might be a 40 year old PC with not much modern-day grunt behind it, but it still has some use for consuming today’s media. Thorbjörn Jemander (opens in new tab) has proven so, and the results are utterly stunning.

This amazing modder used a Raspberry Pi Zero, with its built in Wi-Fi, to convert OpenCV images into “ready to use character screens that the Pet can display.” Essentially it ends up looking like some matrix dreamland simulacrum and its totally badass.
