Do you love 80s computer tech? Well then you’ll love Ben Heck’s BBC Micro-inspired Raspberry Pi keyboard computer. He managed to put the $35 DIY Raspberry Pi computer into a nice keyboard that definitely has some retro style.

Ben Heck thinks that the possibilities with the diminutive Raspberry Pi are endless. His keyboard computer features a vintage enclosure, cartridge slots and an add-on experimenter kit. The keyboard has a lot of wood in it, which comes as no surprise. The retro keyboard computer opens up like a desk drawer when the keyboard is lifted up. It’s possible to add an on/off switch, Ethernet connectivity, video/audio composite, DC 5V input and a USB hub. C++ programming was implemented to run tests via the experimentation kit.

He hopes that this mod will inspire kids to start coding again like many of us did back in the day. You can check out his mod over at The Ben Heck Show.
