Apple Great find by Hack A Day: "Over on the 68kmla forums, a website dedicated to old Macs built before 1994, [zydeco] released his Android port of Mini vMac, a Macintosh Plus emulator that puts the power of a Motorola MC68000 processor and System 7 on any computer.

So, Thom, suddenly nothing against emulation, not even a word or two? ;) ( http://www.osnews.com/comments/26019 ) ...wait, "Great"?! ;)


BTW and seriously, if anybody feels like emulating 68k Macs in general (in more usual setting, on a PC) - Basilisk II is another good option, focusing more on the later 68k Macs so probably more suitable for the desktop (resolution, colour support, and so on).
It was already great in 1999, fast (on CPUs back then), trouble-free and useful (training - due to some strange intrigues, school labs had Classics and LC475; quite possibly the only Macs in the city)

I know what you're trying to say here and am a fan of ye olde Basilisk II myself--but the coolness factor here is that you can run the MacOS on a tablet computer and to my knowledge there is no Android port for Basilisk II. ;)

Yeah, I did kinda made clear that I mention the ~desktop side ;)

But, really, Basilisk II is available for Linux and it's certainly CPU-portable (apparently there's a PSP port; even if non-x86 is without JIT, it should be decently fast on ARMs of today) - so, at worst, installing the more usual Linux stack beside Android libs should do the trick.
