There’s a new Raspberry Pi that has just been announced. It’s a Pi housed in a keyboard for $70USD that gives me vibes of old computers that were housed in keyboards. Sounds like it’s a 4GB Pi4 so it can run a full OS (in a pinch).
Not technically retro but I found it interesting and would be keen to check it out when it becomes available in Australia (depending on price).
Ordered one. I’ve been thinking about building something like this for in-keyboard era PCs. I have a real MSX and love it but haven’t been willing to commit to real hardware for the rest so this should be fun to play around with.
I’m considering doing the same.
Will it work as a keyboard for my Windows PC?
Not automatically. It doesnt have a usb downstream port, doesn’t present itself as a HID device. You can however run software to capture keypresses and forward them over the network to a another host system with receiver software. I’m just not sure why you would…
Love this kind of stuff, thanks for posting about it.
Now to justify adding a 6th Pi to my house.
Yeah that’s way too much effort.
I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along for the Pi, I am going to install Amibian to create a modern Amiga setup
