Funny you mention this, I just stumbled on this page today.


Nice PET with the chicklet keyboard and a Raspberry Pi and Bakewell
board. Apparently they had something to do with the PET back then...

I was trying to find out who sells this case:
(vic and c64 inspired) but I've not found who makes it or where the
picture came from.

It's for the raspberry pi. I have a blog going on the pi here:

But back to the PET, I've not seen one with the chicklet keyboard for
sale in years. If you are ok with getting one with a "regular"
keyboard, that is a lot easier. You probably could build yourself a
replica, the keyboard is similar to A/V keyboards for studios, with a
double key for the space. Use a RPi for the emulation and you get the
GPIOs just like the user port.
