Love the aesthetic of this device, but really I have no use for it: clockworkpi.com/devterm

...but, I am happy that more "independent" hardware is being made :)

@deshipu I wish the trackball and "mouse" buttons where each on one side, but I guess it's not really designed for mouse use...

@FredBednarski I think the keyboard is small enough, that you can keep your index finger on the trackpoint while pressing the buttons with your thumbs.

@FredBednarski it’s... beautiful 😍

I’d be in hipster-computing heaven if I could get Plan 9 running on it!

@FredBednarski vaguely reminds me of a more upscale alphasmart or emate form factor
@allison @FredBednarski I'm seeing a lot of NEC PC-8201 (NEC's version of the Kyocera/Microsoft platform best known as the Tandy Model 100) in this tbh

@bhtooefr @allison Love this - I was always a sucker for the NEC (or Japanese in general) arrow keys, even tho I think they would suck for running games or anything that requires changing directions often/quick.

@FredBednarski @bhtooefr Oh dude, you don't even know. Those arrow keys are *hell* for gaming (take it from someone who actually tried playing Touhou on that layout)

@FredBednarski I have no use for it but I really want one 😂

@FredBednarski @xj9 This looks great. It’s like the properly-productized version of the thing I’ve been hacking together.

@FredBednarski
Looks cool but I'm so tiered of fucking ARM where every single device requires separate os image, patched kernel and tons of proprietary drivers. It's hard to get excited :/
