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.
