My 3-year-old wanted a computer, so this weekend we built a laptop. Now they keep sending emails to their grandmother.
@FiXato These are some actual laptop stickers that came with an Asus notebook, I've finally found a use for them, haha :)
I made sth like this around 1990 for myself while in primary school after short access to a C64. Two years before my family bought their first PC.
Yours looks really great and I would have loved if my parents could have helped me and given hints and hidden gimmicks like that! 🥰
@RobinSohn Thanks :) It still lacks a few things, maybe various stuff to display on the screen with some sheets of paper as someone suggested, a way to close it properly, something to keep the screen vertical when it's open... It was fun to make (though the keyboard was a pain to draw, haha)
@ice Maybe also add a list of paper on the screen with a clip.
You can have different pages (windows) for different apps :)
@bookwar The keyboard took ages to draw, so I had no time to think about the screen (but my kid was adamant about not putting stickers on it because it would hide it lol) Nice idea, I might try this :)
woah very cool! I think our youngest would love one like that.. looking for cardboard as we speak 🤗
The keyboard even has a numpad, you don't see that often in laptops. Quite a high end device you got there! 😄
@normandc Yeah, I wanted to include one because I thought it could help my kid to understand numbers. Not sure it’s very readable though :)
@danslerush Yeah, all of them, the characters and the black and yellow ones all come from the same set.
@ice OK, thank a lot for the informations ! 🖖 I found this :
@danslerush Yeah, that's the ones (though I guess there are several sets, I don't have the skating fish for example)
