What follows is a detailed description of a custom hardware project I did awhile back. I previously posted a simple how-to on another site, but I’ve had a lot of questions about how this was done, so I decided to write a more detailed account of the project. It’s a little rambling, but I hope you find it interesting enough to build your own cyberdeck.
We appreciate that not everyone in the world is an electronic engineer, and to most people, a breadboard is where the Hovis lives, so we’re going to keep things simple. No soldering required and no exotic components. We’ll be using super-cheap and readily available materials to transform our spanking new Raspberry Pi 4 into a laptop, and we’re going to do it for £20.
