Basically it's a Commodore c64 case (C type), to which we've installed a Raspberry Pi and the superb KeyRah interface, and configured it all, so it's ready to use.
The Raspberry PI is running a version of Combian distro which boots directly into VICE C64 - and other Commodore 8-bit machines such at the C128, VIC-20, Plus/4, PET. You can then run software directly from the SD card
And for the ultimate authentic retro feel, the Keyrah interface board enables the original C64 keyboard to work fully with Vice There are also two 9-pin joystick ports available to plug in your genuine retro joysticks for the complete retro gaming experience.
The emulator menu can be accessed by pressing the (redefinable) '£' key. From here you can mess around changing c64 'hardware' settings and load games. You can also speed up everything to have games load almost instantly.
The Raspberry Pi installed is a model 1B and runs Combian perfectly.
