Building a Raspberry Pi-based Cyberdeck #PiDay #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi
Кибердек (Cyberdeck) RA01 is a custom-made wearable computer, inspired by classic cyberpunk science fiction.
Cyberdecks are fictional devices, common for the cyberpunk genre. It seems to me that the source of inspiration for the original concept were 8-bit home computers, and keytars.
Many of the cassette-based home computers shared their signature form-factor, meant to be plugged into a separate display. In science fiction however, computers were pictured as consoles—decks—giving the user access to cyberspace. Deckers, wearing their gear around city streets, became a common concept, especially in games.
