    Hi guys, I would like to introduce you to my new scratch build which I am building with the K70 Corsair Keyboard I was sent for the upcoming German Championships at the Dreamhack in February. Yes this year 20 modders are competing in a new category where its all about modding the **** out the keyboard.
    I decided to do a little more and transform the whole thing into a full fledge foldable desktop PC.
    To keep it small, I am using a Raspberry PI 3B+ and a 10" flatscreen.
    I want that it can be foldable and tucked under the arm if need be.
    here are the first impressions and videos too. more to come.

    thanks guys and its great to be back too.
    well as far as the old look is concerned, you can bet its still subject o change. the main case is more or less built now. when considering how huge some of my cases are and how big n heavy they get, this is really a quick n dirty scratch build. so i have decided to, well maybe anyway, make it the next of kin, of a design i have already made. so wtch out for it coming up.
    at the same time though i have tried yet another new painting technique that i think hasnt been done on cases yet and might be seduced to try that out too.
    anyway. i finished the back bellow flap and now also have 2 usb ports wired in and the power switch case.
    the videos were made slightly before that though. more to come.. :-

    @ DEF, yes I know what you mean, but it depends on whther i make them to be shown or just functional.
    like the Colossus world record mouse I made, I wanted them shown and of course they looked presentable for the theme too. these ones are pretty much just functional I guess.

    Taking a picture of yourself taking a picture of yourself. That's some next-level sh*t. :D

    Very nice build you've got going on there! I might have missed it, but what have you made the case out of? :)

    hi guys, here is the next video, it now has a name.
    LAGERTHA, THE SHIELD MAIDEN.
    Lagertha was Ragnar Lothbrocks first wife.
    Very feminine, delicate n dangerous badass gal.
    it will be decorated to become more feminine but will be pretty much
    the same style as Ragnars Revenge.

    more to come.
