Commodore PET Mini
Build your own Commodore PET
Quite possibly the prettiest retro computer ever
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.
Check out the all-new DEC Mini, the new do-it-yourself 3D-printable, fully-sized, fully-working computer inspired by another one of the loveliest computers of the 80s.
