Some people work while they're stressed and locked indoors. I wrote most of a book during the covid crisis:
I was feeling pretty pleased with myself on that score, but then I found out what Oriol Ferrer Mesià did with his time.
His "Modern Retro Computer Terminals" project are a series of tiny computers built around low-cost processors like the Raspberry Pi and Nvidia Jetson Nano, run off a 3D printer and assembled.
I'm also very fond of the "16:9 5″ LCD Terminal v2" - mostly because safety orange is my favorite color. I get serious Chumby vibes off this one.
They're extraordinary pieces, and Mesià shows off some smart parametric designs. I hope he considers releasing some of those design files.
