Redpill me on Cyberdeck
>>81458283me too, that shit looks rad as fuck
>>81458283the hell is a cyberdeck. it's got this glowie type build but has a gayming keyboard and that OS very closely resembles raspbian with it's lxde and top panel bar.
>>81458283A build like that could be applicable in pen testingAlsoFuck itLive how you wantYou wanna make a cyberdeck?Fucking do it
>>81458317looks like it's a pi build, I'd get one if it dropped the RGB
>>81458283"HEY DUDE WAIT I FOUND A SHIT CACHE"
>when your mental model of a hacker is what you see in movies Jesus this is cringe.
>>81458283dumb bullshit that's worse than a laptop in every scenario you wouldn't buy or build a dedicated tool for anywayschway af anyway
>>81458317its a rugged computer with information stored in it in case the world ends or whateverthey're pretty neat
>>81458339>>81458405the original idea is to have a computer in case of an emergency/catastrophe/apocalypse etc. they're just made to look hacky and cool because people enjoy building them that way
>>81458653I've thought about doing that, would be nice to have something a bit more resilient than my laptop though it is a T61
>>81458283>>81458604>>81458283Price is nice too it seemsbut idk much anything about them, might be shit, lol.https://cyberdeck.store/
>>81458653thats pretty cool.i have rpi3b+ and am thinking about building onedo you know if the creator of this gadget made a guide on how to build it?
>>81458653All a real stalker needs is a pda
>>81458715cyberdeck.cafeReddit.com/r/cyberdeckhttps://hackaday.com/tag/cyberdeck/Pick your poison. There's also a discord, but it's pretty cucked.
>>81458742thanks anon, ill check it out
>>81458714those seem kinda basic, I remember seeing some that had solar flare protection, solar panels outside of the case, water resistance, etc. Ideally you'd build it yourself
>>81458758The idea of a cyberdeck has been around for a long time. The current popularity is based around two philosophies: One group wants to make rugged bug out pcs, like >>81458653 states. The other (arguably more popular) group these days are people that see it more as an art/hobby thing and just want to build cool computers (or cases for SOCs). The latter group is far more about adding stuff they think would be fun even if there's no real reason to. Some develop cartridge systems to share data, cassette based data transfers, head mounted monitors, weird peripherals (gloves instead of mice) and a whole lot of 3d printing. The technical side is often very basic, relying on stuff like a Raspberry Pi, but it's pretty fun to build a case that doesn't have to be commercially viable or make sense. It's basically larping, but it's fun.
>>81458742honestly when I think cyberdeck I picture a large wrist/arm mounted computer
>>81458283Looks like some larper thing. It could be fun to have one but I don't really see much utility.
I just want some toggle switches
>>81458915I have been legitimately contemplating buying a switch panel just to hook it up to scripts
Why not just do a bigger pelican case and put a laptop board in it instead of a rasp pi?
>>81458988because of A E S T H E T I C SandS O U L
>>81459025You could have the same aesthetics with a laptop mobo a fullsize keyboard, and a 15in monitor. It would just be in a bigger case.
>>81459059i thought you just wanted to stick a laptop inside a pelican case. I'm pretty sure there are some out there that straight up make a cyberdeck case for laptop mobos but I think the pi is more popular because of energy consumption
>>81458283For when a 2005 stinkpad doesn't look enough autistic
>>81459131>energy consumptionfags, no cyberdeck is complete without a backpack sized battery bank and a beefy cable running between them
>>81459175>batterythanks, but I'm straight
>gasstep up to the future
>>81458283>Missing function keys
>>81458283Isn't that just a worse laptop?
>>81459248in an apocalyptic scenario, I think you'll be better off scavenging for gas than trying to generate electricity when the grid collapses also you can recharge batteries with a gas generator
>>81459378A radioisotope generator will run 20+ years
>>81459470More like 70+ yearshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkJWRgDu4O4
>>81458283looks fucking sick.shame it has less power than a smartphone.i've thought about building a laptop out of a briefcase before.
>>81458653Why not just get one of these and call it a day ?
When things go down, EMPs will wipe complex electronics. From the looks of this, it doesn't protect against such attacks at all. Might as well just have a normal laptop.
>>81459470first time hearing about this, looks pretty cyber>>81459642you could, and I'm sure someone has. Most of the cyberdecks you'll find online are made by hobbyists who just want the thing to look cool, but there is a small community that uses/modifies regular rugged laptops and fill it up with wikipedia backups/pdfs etc. and stores them away in case of an emergency
>>81459587>>81459642The whole point of the thing is that it sips power. In a grid down situation, you would want a computer system that could last days to weeks. https://spellfoundry.com/product/sleepy-pi-2/Combine with something like this, you're looking at approximately 500 something hours on a 15000 mAH battery pack.>>81459714A faraday cage is a simple enough thing to build. Although I wouldn't build it out of foil like people suggest on the internet.
It's some try hard shit. We just use tough books and custom Satcom cases that open on the ends via twist locks. I've never seen a all in one in a pelican or the like. We just plug the cases into ports on the silver bullet or whatever then ratchet strap them to whatever they are leaning on.
>>81459642Doesn't look as schway
>>81458283Good for LARPing and not much else
>>81458283>KnowledgeBas>eWOW is this the power of the powerful hacker known as Reddit?
>>81459972>obviously RBPi (baby's first SBC)>even stock OS >heavily customized to lock hacker-ish>yet unable to properly line break This is embarrassing to look at, honestly
>>81459792Ok, but how much money and time are you going to sink into this project when a phone or a tablet with a USB hub could perform the same tasks and draw the same or even less power?If you're in a grid down situation where you're required to plug into a LAN or have multiple USB devices connected you're gonna have a proper power supply to power a laptop. A guy sitting alone at home with only a 30 watt solar panel is not going to do anything more than maybe watch a movie, read the occasional PDF, listen to music or write some notes. In the same space that thing takes (and I mention space because it's clearly aimed at portable operation) you could put an HF radio, VHF radio, smartphone and a small solar panel.
>>81458317This, it looks awesome except this fucking keyboard
>>81458749>Kill Strelok> Game over
>>81458714OH WOAH DUDE that's like totally schway bro. And it doesn't even cost that much brouzouf. AMIRITE FELLOW LAINS? I can't wait to consoom product so I can finally live that high tech low life when the BIG FAT BOY starts dropping.Catch you on the flipside guys!!
>>81458283Tasteless, impractical fashion accessories for hipsters that think they're some kind of movie hacker because they have a basic understanding of bash.
>>81460020Can you post yours? I'm interested in seeing what a proper cyberdeck looks like. I'll wait.
>>81458604> RuggedThe shitty 3d printed plastic is cracked everywhere
>>81460815I don't use a cyberdeck because I'm not a faggot.
>>81460815>Can you post yours? I'm interested in seeing what a proper dragon dildo looks like. I'll wait.No you're right fucking your ass with a dragon dildo is based and redpilled, I'm just mad I don't have one (sour grapes). Thanks for pointing that out.
>>81458283looks like soiware
>>81459197>Noisy>Gas>Continuous refillingA bit inconvenient, don't you think?Go for low power, get a tritium source (won't alarm the alphabet soup agencies) and ass solar cells, and get yourself a power source with 12 year half life. Of course you need low power devices, such as QRP radios.
>>81460870Ok >>81460925>immediate shit slinging due to the fact they are unable to post any sort of constructive comment or generate a non low effort postYou have to be 18+ and American to post here.
>>81460828some people build them just for looks, but the original idea was to build a rugged, bug out PC
>>81459642I need you on my level
>>81460716You seem to have the wrong website, this is 4chan, a website based on a japanese forum 2chan. As a result of this, the community of this website is very heavily skewed towards anime fans and weebs in general! A website you might prefer if you are not interested in that would be reddit!
>>81460870I keep trying to find an excuse to buy one of those but I just don't need one. As awesome as they are.
Kinda interested in making one as a typing machine.
>>81458283it's kind of an art project
>>81458283I won't give you an excuse to buy a toy which you loose interest in the day after you got it. looks like a dust collector
>>81458283I like that DIN connector. Pretty neat
>>81458283Its just a laptop that survives being thrown in the back of a truck. Might be useful idk
>>81458326this.They give you all the info you need, just put in some effort and you're good
Thoughts on a cyberdeck in the style of a Victorian writing desk?
>>81458283Only for Division agents.
>>81458714Holy shot that website is absolute cancer. Also if you want a cyberdeck at least have the decency of making it yourself instead of buying some kit from a gayass website.
>>81460707You think you're insulting me, but I like the memes.
>>81462497found the phoneposter
>>81462664Try again, I'm posting from my thonkpad.
>>81458405> NOOO YOU CAN'T HAVE FUN
>>81460870>Aria of SorrowMy nigga, might I inquire what this device is?
