ApocaPi Now Is A Cyberdeck For What Comes After



Completion of the globe appears better currently than in the past, also in the 1980s. However you, dear Hackaday viewers, will certainly desire greater than simply a bug-out bag packed with C-rations and also water resistant suits. You will certainly require the technical variation of a bug-out bag– a mil-spec-esque cyberdeck, which is precisely what [hammerandhandmi] remains in the center of refining.

That’s not some type of expensive cake frying pan– it’s a Pelican 1170 situation lined with conductive aluminum foil tape. You see, [hammerandhandmi] has numerous factors not specified upon for doing this, consisting of EMP defense. Inside is an 8 GB Raspberry Pi 4B putting on a Pi Juice UPS HAT and also drinking from an expensive power supply. The primary billing resource for the old Mac publication battery is solar by means of a huge panel that’s exterior to cyberdeck. A smaller sized, second panel lives inside for back-up objectives. There’s likewise an MPPT fee controller for to sustain the various battery chemistries. [hammerandhandmi] picked the Pelican 1170 since they require to place it to the rear of an LC2 Alice backpack structure. The 1170 is larger than the preferred 1150, and also remains in reality practically the specific size of the LC2 structure.

The factor of this develop is to preserve power for the objective of protecting understanding– all that things we’ll require to reconstruct mankind. There will certainly be much info offered up by means of FOSS offline internet browser Kiwix, plus an atlas, some armed forces area handbooks, a great deal of survival information, every one of guides Task Gutenberg needs to use, plus a handful of flicks and also a couple of video game ROMs so [hammerandhandmi] can endure the remainder of their days in what is with any luck some type of solar punk paradise.

Offered there suffices time to apply everything, [hammerandhandmi] prepares to include an SDR with antenna connection, GPS device, 12 V port, a number of SSDs, a powered USB center, and also perhaps an RFID viewers. However the coolest component is that they eventually intend to link every little thing as much as a HUD placed in a ballistic safety helmet. See? The armageddon can be amazing. It depends on us!

We usually see cyberdecks with mechanical key-boards, similar to this cherry Pi number. However the restored keeb from a 1989 Compaq laptop computer may be equally as future-proof.
