      1. @techdisk I like his reviews. They are always both silly and very informative at the same time.

        1. @adiwan I know the guy who made the instructable for the tiny CRT IRL.

          1. @techdisk Cool. This is so pointless but fascinating.

            1. @adiwan We both basically flipped out when we saw that.

              1. @techdisk I imagine how it'd look like if someone built those camcorder CRT into a VR headset. That would be rad.

                  1. @techdisk Mini CRTs would make a really cool 90s Borg costume.

    2. @adiwan I've been trying to find one of those Pyramid PCs for my illuminati themed server room since forever

      1. @ceruleanspark I bet you would cut an eye-shaped hole and install a light in the case.

        1. @adiwan A lot of the reviews of it suggest it was a nightmare to cool effectively, because the motherboard was upside down by design.

          1. @ceruleanspark I wonder why they did this. I don't see any advantage in flipping this over.

            1. @adiwan Tall components intersecting with the sloping walls.

    3. @adiwan I remember having that OQO UMPC in my hands at the ceBit expo. That thing was awkward to hold in the hands, the keyboard was not very responsive and neither the touchscreen (it was a resistive touchscreen).

      1. @adiwan I still want a computer like that though. I've been trying without success to build one out of a raspberry pi

        1. @ceruleanspark A friend of mine had a similar wish and he bought simply a Pandora. It's not the same it is a bit bulkier but he was happy with that.
