The PiDP-11 is another project I’ve wanted to get stuck into for years. It’s a kit built around a Raspberry Pi that gives you a functional front panel for a DEC PDP-11/70. It’s absolutely gorgeous, though I don’t think my soldering skills are at the level yet to take on such a project.

I watched a Beige-o-Vision video introducing the kit, and it ended up being a great intro into the PDP-11, including some fun video showing just how big hard drives and minicomputers were at the time. He’s made it onto the list!
