Chapter 4. Emulators

In this chapter, we will dive into emulation on the Raspberry Pi. But what is emulation? Emulation is the act of duplicating the functionality of one system onto another. This means that we can make the Raspberry Pi pretend to be something else, such as a Super Nintendo, or a Commodore 64, or a Sega Genesis. By utilizing different emulation software, our Raspberry Pi can be all these things and more.
