Created a compact computer the size of a pencil case

The laptop computer is based on the Raspberry Pi system. It has a full keyboard.

Penk Chen called his creation Penkesy, which is consonant with the English word “pencil case”. However, despite the fact that the device resembles a school case for pens and pencils, the gadget got a nickname in honor of the creator.

Penkesu is based on the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W system, which allows you to do everything from watching videos to developing simple applications.
The screen has a diagonal of about 20 cm with a resolution of 1280 × 400 and is connected with an HDMI ribbon cable. Penk did not skimp on the keyboard, so it is mechanical here. At 50% monitor brightness, the mini-computer will last for 5 hours.

The device does not have high power, but it is incredibly compact and cheap. Chen said he was not going to sell the device on a large scale. The enthusiast preferred to distribute circuits for assembly on the Internet for free. This will allow DIYers with experience with Raspberry Pi systems to build their own handheld computers.

According to him, it takes about $150 to assemble one Penkesy. But the amount may vary depending on the selected materials and their cost in individual regions.
