Commodore PET Mini

Build your own Commodore PET

Quite possibly the prettiest retro computer ever

Now remembering
Chuck Peddle

This is one of the most iconic-looking computer of the 70's, it reminds us of an era of frenetic innovation, harsh competition and bold design choices that shaped the computer industry as we know it today.

This project is based on the Commodore PET model 8032. You'll 3D print a case that contains a Raspberry Pi computer and a tiny screen to emulate the almighty PET (and many other computers and game consoles). It has been carefully designed to be as accurate as possible to the original design, all the connections are made on the back panel and it even hinges upwards to reveal its guts, just like the original!

Chuck Peddle, the designer of the authentic Commodore PET and the 6502 microprocessor, sadly passed away on december 2019. The genius in his designs will remain as a cornerstone of the personal computer revolution.

Chuck Peddle himself took a photo with the Commodore PET Mini serial number 0001, while at an exhibition at the University of Maine.
