Everyone wanted a PDP-8 minicomputer. Well, in 1968. Blinkenlights! Just boot the SD image on a Pi, maybe add the front panel later on.

The front panel PCB designed for the PiDP-8
|Adafruit 40-pin header||x 1|
|udn2981 driver IC||x 1|
|Resistor 1k ohm||x 3|
|390 ohm resistor||x 12|
Any small switch works fine, but I made my own 'PDP-8 replica switch' for good looks.
|1N4148 – General Purpose Fast Switching||x 26|
5 mm LED: Yellow
Any 5mm yellow LED
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
Any Pi from the A+/B+/2/3/Zero will work. Bootable SD card image works on all of them except the 3. For the 3, install the tarball on Raspbian instead.
