Thanks to a mac-hardware emulator for Android, it’s now possible to run Mac OS 7 on the Nook Touch (or other Android-based tablet).

If you’ve been looking for some retro-goodness to dump on your Nook or tablet–Oregon Trail anyone?–this simple hack will certainly help. Hit up the link below for additional screenshots and more information.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Then you put At Ease on it and pretend you have an iPad prototype?

    I remember liking System 7 when it was new, but I ran it on a Mac emulator on the PC and it wouldn’t do anything, hardly. I couldn’t even get it to play Mp3s.

    What I’d rather see for retro goodness: An Amiga tablet.

    ooo… hadn’t thought about Amiga in quite a while. But on a tablet — sign me up!
