Raspberry Pi 400 Is Literally a Computer in a Keyboard

Raspberry Pi has just launched a brand-new device, and this time it comes in a rather unexpected form.

The Raspberry Pi 400 is still a pocket-size device, only that it ships packed in a compact keyboard. That’s right, the Raspberry Pi 400 is actually a computer in a keyboard, and it is available in two different packages, namely the standard version and a fully-featured kit.

Raspberry Pi 400 is based on the 4GB Raspberry Pi, only that it’s faster than the original version.

If you want to buy only the computer, which is actually a keyboard, the price you need to pay is just $700, but there’s a chance most people would go for the so-called Raspberry Pi 400 Personal Computer Kit which is available for $100 and comes with plenty of extra goodies.

Only a bunch of languages supported initially

More specifically, it includes the Raspberry Pi 400 computer, an official USB mouse and USB-C power supply, and an SD card with Raspberry Pi OS pre-installed, a micro HDMI to HDMI cable, and the official Raspberry Pi Beginner’s Guide.

“User friendliness is about more than performance: it can also be about form factor. In particular, having fewer objects on your desk makes for a simpler set-up experience. Classic home computers – BBC Micros, ZX Spectrums, Commodore Amigas, and the rest – integrated the motherboard directly into the keyboard. No separate system unit and case; no keyboard cable. Just a computer, a power supply, a monitor cable, and (sometimes) a mouse,” the Raspberry Pi Foundation explains in an announcement today.

The keyboard layouts available with the Raspberry Pi 400 will originally support English (bot the UK and the U.S.), French, Italian, German, and Spanish, but more languages will be added at a later time. Eventually, Raspberry Pi wants the same set of languages to be supported as on the official keyboard.
