Do you like retro computers? Then pay attention to the latest offer from hardware designer pink chain: team with retrograde point A screen in the form of a hole.
The design was shared by Chen himself, who defines himself as a “digital nomad”, via githubwhere he posted a large number of photos and mentions of his creation, a computer with a motherboard framework and a circular 5-inch (1080 x 1080) LCD screen.
Cover can be printed Entirely in 3D The computer is compatible with the OLKB Preonic mechanical keyboard. “I’ve always wanted a device with a circular screen, with the product [Framework] Released main board and two-dimensional drawing. I finally had the chance to build one,” Chen tells himselfwho adds, by way of ice: And yes, run Spacewar! 🙂“.
In a way, its round screen is similar to the one in PDP-1 Flagship ComputerDigital Equipment Corporation’s first computer manufactured around the 1960s.
Motherboard that you used from the Framework, keyboard OLKB BRIONIC IS AND AS FOR the screen It uses a 5-inch circular (1080 x 1080) LCD screen. Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, which is good,” he points out when it comes to software.
To assemble his prototype, he used small Qin 5 x 2mm magnetswhile acknowledging that he chose this formula “for purely aesthetic reasons” and the set could also be assembled by adding screw holes and slots to include it 4 . USB ports.
To complete his design, use a combination of pearl white and silver. The result, of course, is stunning, with a retro-futuristic touch reminiscent of old terminals built using circular cathode ray oscilloscope screens.
