A six display Cyberdeck using Raspberry Pi #RaspberryPi #Cyberdeck @Hacksterio @Raspberry_Pi

Cyberdeck specialist Holistech has launched kits to build your own multi-display portables powered by Raspberry Pi single-board computers — offering up a whopping six screens in a single foldable unit.

“I was trying to create a cyberdeck that is USB powered but provides a maximum number of screens. Hence six it was,” Holistech’s pseudonymous founder explains. “The use case I had in mind is a Blackout situation, when only USB solar powerbanks are available, but you need to perform productive work. I use it for software development in which I require several screens with documentation, chats, editor and test shells.”

  1. This is a really cool project, though really expensive. Even if you print everything yourself, it seems to me that you’re easily looking at north of $1000 worth of parts for the full setup (6 screens, 3 Pis, 3 chunky powerbanks). Still, awesome to see such a unique and polished design.

    What I find most intriguing (and transferable to potentially cheaper designs) is the use of multiple separate computers and a software KVM switch. I’m not sure how it’s supposed to work in an off grid situation if you don’t use a switch and ethernet cables to connect the Pis though. Can three Pis connect together over WiFi without an external network?
