A tiny hand-held laptop built around an Skull Canyon NUC with an inbuilt graphics tablet and hand wired programmable mechanical keyboard. Still needs some work but It's finally in a condition that I can take some photos of it and take it out to draw with.

Build log here.

Original concept here.

Hey bud that's one great looking custom portable, you should drop by our modding group and show it off, I'm sure everyone would love to see it. https://discord.gg/Tv37jvd

Decent build, looks very nice and stylish. Although transparent keycaps look odd to me.

Magnificent work - I used to dabble in electronics and lash-ups in the eighties and this was the sort of thing I used to make, albeit with a jack to plug into a conventional television as we did not yet have LCD technology.

OMG No way... it's real!
Astonished work!
It's quite work to make a 3D-art look like real thing, but make a real thing which look like a screenshot from PC-game... well, a moment ago I thought it's impossible.

its an interesting concept. Do you plan to do a demo of it?  I really like the way it looks.

Depends how many people want one, I haven't got a tripod or anything so it would probably be one of those awkward one handed videos where the camera spends half the time looking at the floor.
Oh god, I need something like this for my phone. So tired of hunting and pecking with a too-big fingertip on a smooth screen.
