Nick Lee showcases how he installed Windows 95 on an Apple Watch. That red straw you see spinning has one end glued to the watch's crown and the other to a motor to prevent the watch from sleeping. Insane, involving a ridiculous amount of very talented work, but it boots.

With a 520 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, the Apple Watch packs a lot of computing horsepower into a very small package. On paper, its processor alone is about twenty-five times faster than the average 386, and 512 MB was the size of a hard drive in the mid nineties, not memory. As a result, I was feeling confident that the Apple Watch had the ability to run one of the most revered desktop operating systems Redmond has ever produced.
