Stumbling on cool things

I’m interested in emulators, always have been, and I was wondering if anyone had used LLVM to write an emulator. I came across this highly detailed account which was a fun read:

Statically Recompiling NES Games into Native Executables with LLVM and Go

It concludes stating that static recompilation is probably less practical than JIT, which I think is the correct conclusion. Still, nice to have someone go through the effort of building something just to show how it can be done.
