Open Source Intelligence Cyberdeck packs a Raspberry Pi #PiDay @Raspberry_Pi @hacksterio
Maker and analyst Jordan Wildon has put together a stylish cyberdeck designed for open source intelligence (OSINT) work — and built around a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 4GB single-board computer.
“I’m an (amateur) developer and full-time OSINT analyst,” Wildon explains of the project’s scope. “My job mostly surrounds designing methods to collect and analyze information. This’ll most likely be my playground for new tools and investigating shady internet goings on. Right now I’m running Raspbian Lite but intend to swap it out after playing a bit more.”
The heart of the system, designed for a compact layout, is a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B 4GB single-board computer linked to a Pimoroni HyperPixel 4.0 display. The unusually small keyboard is a PocketType, built around tactile switches and with small round keycaps in order to reduce the overall footprint.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
