Raspberry Pi becomes a retro computer with this cyberdeck

Over the years, we've talked to you several times about cyberdecks for Raspberry Pi, but this one, made by the maker known as Crookdmouth on Reddit, is quite peculiar. In fact, in addition to providing essential computing functions, it can also be used as a portable arcade for two players with a retro PC design.

It has a small screen between two sets of arcade controls along the top, while below we find a mechanical keyboard and two handles have been integrated on the sides for portability. Of course, it wouldn't be a Raspberry Pi project without a Pi in it.

Crookdmouth chose to use a Raspberry Pi Model 3B for his work, paired with a Pimoroni HyperPixel 4.0 Square for the display. The unit can work on the move thanks to an Anker PowerCore 26800 powerbank, which allows for up to 12 hours of battery life.

The housing is mainly made of wood with an elegant combination of gray and black colors. A switch can let the current flow to the unit through the internal battery or the mains power supply. Some ports are accessible on the sides, including a MicroSD slot, a USB port, an HDMI and a 3.5mm audio jack. In case you are interested, we recommend that you take a look at the original thread on Reddit and view the album shared on Imgur for details on the creation process.
