Cyberdecks have been around as ideas for decades, having been coined by William Gibson in his 1984 novel Neuromancer. Cyberpunk 2077 has brought the genre to the mainstream again, for all its flaws, and has inspired people to recreate cyberpunk-themed devices. One such device is the Кибердек RA01, which translates to Cyberdeck RA01.

The Cyberdeck RA01 is actually a portable computer, as it contains all the components needed to operate it on its own. Specifically, the device has an ultra-wide 8.8-inch IPS screen that resolves at 1,920 x 480 pixels. The display sits within a Commodore C64C case, which also contains two 18650 batteries and a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B.

Additionally, the Cyberdeck RA01 has a Vortex Core 40% keyboard, a joystick from a Sony PSP, several buttons and an Arduino Micro. Moreover, the device has speakers, HDMI, Ethernet and USB 3.0, thanks to the Raspberry Pi 4. The Cyberdeck RA01 runs Raspbian, too. Detailed information can be found on Opacity, including a build guide.
