The DarkPi is decentralized-first open source software on open-development hardware. It aims to fill a niche which we consider a necessary step for the success of Walkaway-type projects, neighborhood emergency response networks, and exploration both onworld and off.[1]

The form factor is sometimes called a "cybredeck"[2] (after the portable computers in the Sprawl trilogy) and/or the "Shadowrun device", and this particular one (the DarkPi) is intended to be customized, upgraded, and maintained by the end user.[1]

The cyberdeck and its mesh network will also be part of the PodHomes design, where they will be available for communications, environmental controls, entertainment, and other functions.[3]

  2. Well, okay, "cyberdeck" is apparently the normal spelling, but we prefer "cybredeck" because it's more cybre. (Also, normality is overrepresented.)
