NB100 cyberdeck

0x17 turned a vintage Amstrad NC100 into a cyberdeck.
Published August 18, 2022

The NB100 cyberdeck is a project by 0x17 aka Philipp from Click!Clack!Hack! podcast (German) and also the Damn Fine Keyboards PDF-magazine.

This time he desecrated a vintage Amstrad NC100 by eviscerating it, putting a split Corne into the housing, and replacing the display with a contemporary 8.8" one.

The donor, an Amstrad NC100 Notepad, was an A4-size, portable computer released by Amstrad in 1992, with a form factor popular in the cyberdeck scene: similar to that of the Tandy TRS-80 Model 100 or the Framedeck.

The project is well documented on hackaday:
