Cyberdeck is a wonderful combination of 80s aesthetics and cutting-edge technology, in this case raspberry pie, Is the favored construction of manufacturers inspired by cyberpunk, this particularly good example caught our attention today hacker.
A network achievement of the manufacturer’s electronic imagination named after Bongoplayingmonkey’s excellent name. This construction uses the Sanyo radio/tape player of the late 1970s as the basis of its retro-futurism-“I always feel that sci-fi design should naturally From the design of consumer electronics in the 70s and 80s, because this is the visual environment for writers like Gibson,” Bongoplayingmonkey wrote in an article Cyberdeck Cafe.
Bongoplayingmonkey wanted to keep the VU table and world map on the front of the tape player, but removed the rest and replaced it with a two-line LCD display and a 65% mechanical keyboard (an AZAZZ AK33).There is a Raspberry Pi 4, Geekworm x708 UPS and some batteries, all custom-installed for safe suspension. On the side is a good hacking technique. A HID device consists of a rotary dial, an analog stick and two buttons that simulate mouse clicks. All these buttons are connected via an Arduino that simulates a USB input device-very suitable for scrolling and reading text, according to Introducing the Bongo Monkey.
However, the resistance must be the screen. A 7-inch Elecrow small LCD is mounted on the 3D printing bracket and hung from the articulated arm on the left side of the electronic deck. This is an extraordinary project that perfectly complements the appearance of the deck. Ethernet, USB, HDMI and GPIO can all be accessed through the top of the chassis, so the card holder can also be expanded.
There is still some work to be done-the code for the VU meter (displaying information such as Wi-Fi signal strength or battery level) and the LCD display has not yet been completed, but this Network deck Has emerged as a special cyberpunk hybrid of hacker ingenuity and old trash on eBay.
