The passionate DIY project of the artist and technical craftsman RA has brought a mature portable Cyberdeck to the world. If you have read the Neuromancer novel by William Gibson or played the excellent tactical role-playing game of the Shadowrun series, you will use the network platform to navigate and crack the Matrix, which is a true representative of the disappearance of the virtual landscape of the Internet. Unfortunately, there is no matrix for you to invade yet in the world-but Cyberdek RA01 focuses more on nostalgia and the vertigo of pure science fiction, rather than actual usability.
Cyberdeck RA01 follows the cyberpunk principles because it is a completely independent portable computer: it has an ultra-wide 8.8-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1,920 x 480, allowing users to explore a customized Raspbian operating system (with Customized startup sound) !) Runs inside Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (which means HDMI, Ethernet and USB 3.0 support). A pair of 18650 batteries are built on the portability of Cyberdeck-but the transport belt and handle are also suitable for any serious Matrix operation.
The parts of Cyberdeck are located in a Commodore C64C housing, and the creator reused it; he added a Vortex 40% keyboard, a PS4 controller joystick for mouse input, a knob for volume control, speakers , And even created a new typesetting font, just for extra style credits. RA said that this project does not mean to be a productivity machine-it is more like an exercise in originality and creative freedom. We will say it did.If you want to learn more about the project, or even want to customize your own project, RA has Guide How Cyberdeck RA01 is manufactured.Time to start work and play Shadowrun or upcoming games Game console.
