Ask HN: Did you find something to use your Raspberry Pi 400 for?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • GitHub repo tailscale

    The easiest, most secure way to use WireGuard and 2FA.

  • GitHub repo Pi-hole

    A black hole for Internet advertisements

    I use it with pi-hole [1], and as a Tailscale [2] bridge.

    I tried to use it as an alternative workstation (running on sway over arch); the 4K display output is nice, but limited to 30hz, and the machine just isn't peachy enough for my use-case.


  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo pi400kb

    Raw HID keyboard forwarder to turn the Pi 400 into a USB keyboard

    I'm currently working on getting Kali Linux installed and working on my Pi400 with an adafruit screen attached to the GPIO port. It's a convenient size for hand-carrying, and with the screen disconnected it could pass (to the casual observer) as a simple compact keyboard. Especially when paired with the pi400kb "driver" [1]

    That it'll run off of a USB battery pack for quite some time is an added bonus. It's obviously not as powerful as a dedicated laptop but as a "cyberdeck" or an incognito penetration test device, I think it'll find a place of regular usage in my life.
