A hacker is able to install Windows 95 on an Apple Watch

Apple Watch-windows 95-0

Since Apple released the Apple Watch, we've seen a lot of people do a lot of things with it by accessing the system through the hidden diagnostic port on the back of the watch, but a hacker has gone a step further as he was simply not very satisfied with the capabilities of the watch and set out to install the now mythical Windows 95 on the Apple Watch.

Nick Lee, that's the name of this hacker, he started the project more than anything out of nostalgia since he grew up in the 90's, time when this system was launched. In the end, after a lot of effort, he managed to carry it out thanks mainly to patching some files with the WatchKit development kit, creating an application capable of running the system, that is, in this case said application was the disk image from ago 20 years of said operating system.

Anyway it is just a curiosity, since it is not functional at all, The first thing is that, as I mentioned, since it is not installed natively (among other things because there are no drivers), it is run by emulation, which translates into a little over an hour or so to boot.

He has even invented a curious device that can be seen in the attached video, in which he has attached a kind of red wand to the digital crown of the watch to prevent it from going to rest since every so often the motor pulses the crown and thus avoid this happening in the middle of the system load.

Among other curiosities also has ported Mac OS 7.5.5 to Apple Watch just like Billy Ellis, another programmer who got that both iOS 4.2.1 and OS X by Yosemite run on the Apple Watch
