Times change: Samsung Gear smartwatch boots Macintosh II OS, no problem!

The Apple Macintosh (yeah, that’s what those machines were called back then) in 1984 may have been the true personal computing game changer for Apple, but a not-so-popular Macintosh II too was announced just 3 years after the initial iteration.

Times have changed (pun intended) and smartwatches are now running the operating systems that once made personal computing possible. The Samsung Gear is a mean machine, albeit one that fits on the strap of your wrist; the device has enough in it to run the OS used by the Macintosh II!

See it in action for yourself:

Of course, the hardware has changed tremendously, and the Gear doesn’t run the software natively… instead, it uses an emulator — Mini vMac II ($1.99). If you’re wondering why someone would want to do something like this, you’re thinking along the wrong lines. Think why not.
