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.

The project includes an "UltraWide 8.8″ LCD Terminal" built around a skinny 4:1 LCD and powered by an OpenGL-capable Nvidia Jetson Nano. It is so wide it didn't fit in Mesià's 3D printer bed, so it had to be assembled from multiple pieces.

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.
