Nook Simple Touch Hacked to Emulate PlayStation
The Nook Simple Touch by Barnes and Noble is famously easy to root, and hackers have put it to all sorts of inventive uses, but this one may take the cake: a Hack a Day reader sent in a video of him playing the PlayStation titles Crash Team Racing, Monster Rancher 2 and Spyro 2 on his Nook's black and white e-ink screen.
The hack, which requires a rooted Nook Simple Touch, involved installing a version of Mac OS 7 and FPSE (Free PlayStation Emulator, which assigns the bottom-half of the touch-screen to a virtual-button controller), and a program called NoRefresh to manage the display.
