How’d you like to run Newton OS on your iPad? You can with an emulator, and it actually runs on your iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac OS X too. This is all done through an open source project called Open Einstein which now has a working iOS port. It’s not exactly an easy achievement, but if you’re dedicated and can find yourself a Newton ROM image, you can pull it off.

Apparently the emulator runs at about half the speed of a real Newton, and is a bit buggy, but just the fact that you can do this is pretty interesting. You can check out a video of the Newton OS emulator running on an iPad over at Flickr, which is also where the above picture is from.
