#OffGRiD# A writer-oriented computer inspired by the GRiD Compass.
##Status## The design is a work-in-progress. I'm currently working on designing the 3D printable parts around a set of components that constitute the "reference design".
I'm designing OffGRiD because I haven't been able to find a laptop that works well where I like to work, and has the features that are key to me as a programmer and writer. These include a great keyboard, an indoor/outdoor-readable screen and the ability to work away from mains power for extended periods of time.
The reference design for OffGRiD is based around an inexpensive single-board computer (SBC), a Pixel Qi display and a custom Cherry-MX switch keyboard and a solar panel for extended off-grid use. The design however is inteded to accomodate alternative off-the-shelf components allowing for various and previously impossible configurations.
- Indoor/outdoor usable
- Great keyboard
- Low power/long battery life
- Off-the shelf electronics
- 3D printable custom components
- 3D parts 100x100x100mm or less (to print well on most 3D printers)
