We’ve coated many Raspberry Pi cyberdecks over time, however we’ve by no means seen one fairly like this, created by a maker often called Crookdmouth over at Reddit. This cyberdeck supplies important computing features and doubles as a conveyable, 2-player arcade with a retro PC design.
In line with Crookdmouth, TRS-80 MC-10, which they'd rising up, and different machines within the coco (coloured laptop) household have been the inspiration behind the design. It has a small display screen between two units of arcade controls alongside the highest, whereas the underside consists of a mechanical keyboard. There are two handles on the edges for portability. In fact, it wouldn’t be a Raspberry Pi project with no Pi inside.
Crookdmouth has opted to make use of a Raspberry Pi mannequin 3B for this mission with a Pimoroni HyperPixel 4.0 Sq. for the display screen. The unit can run on the go due to an Anker PowerCore 26800, offering as much as 12 hours of steady energy.
Crookdmouth constructed the case from scratch. The housing is made primarily from wooden with a modern grey and black coloration scheme. An on/off change can sign energy to the unit by means of both battery or AC energy. Some ports are accessible on the edges, together with a MicroSD slot, a USB port, an HDMI port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
