There Is A Raspberry Pi 400 Hidden In This Keyboard
Just Add A Monitor And Boot
The Raspberry Pi 400 is not quite the cyberdeck you are hoping to upgrade to once Cyberpunk 2077 finally arrives but for now it is the closest thing you can buy, and it is only $70. In this tiny little portable keyboard is a a 1.8GHz Pi 4 ARM Cortex-A72 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11ac wireless, gigabit ethernet, dual micro-HDMI outputs, a microSD port and a 40-pin Raspberry Standard IDE-cable connection.
For peripherals, you will have two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB 2.0 port to populate; while there is a single USB-C port it will be used by the 5V power supply. If you don’t already have various pieces to required to make the Raspberry Pi 400 sing, for an extra $30 you can get the full kit which includes a nice USB C power supply, a Raspberry mouse, a mini-HDMI to regular HDMI cable, a name-brand SD card with the Raspberry Pi OS already installed, and the Official Raspberry Pi Beginner’s Guide.
Of course, Hackaday did not take long to tear the board apart and they discovered a hefty aluminium heatsink attached to the A72, which not only handles the heat produced by the processor but have made them curious about the overclocking abilities of this keyboard computer.
