    This has to be the opening for the long overdue DIY Perks and Linus Tech Tips cross-over collab.
    Matt making the project open sourced and even using Framework-components (of which Linus is an investor) it almost couldn't be more of an obvious opportunity :-).

      ​@Eden K Are you seriously comparing Unbox Therapy with LTT? Even though both are tech channels, it's like comparing pears to oranges. Point me to a video of Unbox Therapy where they provided graph and in-depth review of different techs?

      @Eden K Motorola had the first mover advantage when it came to mobile phones… look at where they are today. Linus’ success is undeniably through skill and hardwork, even more so the fact he’s maintained it this long.

    • Jardel C.
      Jardel C. Month ago +9

      @Eden K LTT does employee several dozen full time engineers and software developers. I wouldn't say they lack skill as shown by their occasional in-depth videos but rather they focus on quantity to support it's 100+ employees. The company produces over a dozen videos a week across all of it's channels. I think once their new lab extension is complete, they will definitely start producing technical content on a consistent basis, perhaps even a new lab channel and website.

    This is the sort of stuff I was excited to see when I first heard about Framework. Yes there laptops look nice, but because all the parts can be purchase individually and they don't do any lockdown shenanigans, it makes projects like this way easier and importantly, consistent if other people want to do it (rather than gutting an old laptop).

    • Tech Freak
      Tech Freak Month ago +4

      @Alex C The entire laptop is still together by nothing but screws, and the motherboard can actually be used as a separate standalone computer. Most computers don't let you do that. Almost every single component that could break is replaceable. Hinge brakes? Replaceable. Keyboard? When placeable. Screen? Replaceable. All with a screwdriver and a little time, with no need to take it to a repair shop. And unlike every other laptop in the world, it's actually upgradeable. It started with an 11th gen processor, now you can replace it with a 12th gen. Linus fell in love with this concept so much that not only did he actually buy the computer as his new daily driver, but after the first video he made on it he invested $250,000. It sounds like a small investment, and that's because they weren't actually looking for big investments by the time he finally asked. He's also made it clear that should the company eventually betray its users, he will publicly denounce them and end his investment.

    I would likely not utilize them on my own (my HP laptop will become dust before I purchase another laptop), but I want to say the largest possible THANK YOU for making the 3D printing files open-source and allowing, nay encouraging, other people to modify them on their own. I'm sure it takes a lot of work to create this, and ending your (presumably) days and weeks of hard working and engineering with a desire for other people to share in your amazing creation is truly, well, amazing! Thank you, good job on the excellent video, and have a nice day!

      Matthew Anderson Month ago +16

      @Jacob Nelson while true altruism is impossible to achieve, it is possible to be less greedy. Matt could milk this project for every penny. However, he decided that the ad/sponsorship revenue was enough for him. And that he didn’t need to sell the project as well. I will never fault someone for trying to get the last dime out of their hard work. Money is something we all need. But when there is more money to be made, yet you forgo it to help others… well I would consider that commendable and kind.

    • Tech Freak

    Now finally, a laptop with proper ergonomics that can help me get me more work done on train travels.😁
    Seriously, I'm a big fan of this design. I day-dreamed of having folding vertical side panels to my laptop when I was gone studying far off from home. So satisfying to finally see it built, in probably the best possible way. That also goes for all the content on your channel. You always put loads of thoughts in every projects, and come up with something that is both pleasing and functional.

      @Zero I really hope framework decides to provide a touch screen. As an IT guy, we have far too many users that demand having a touch screen for me to be able to continue purchasing more framework laptops in our environment. I'd love to see framework keep doing what they're doing but continue to provide more options.

  • Felipe Falanghe | aka HarvesteR

    This is a really cool build. I've had triple screen setups for ages, and I've always wondered why laptops couldn't use a screen configuration like yours. Never had thought about the terrible ergonomics of not having the screens up at eye level, but it looks like it's very much as bad as it seems.
    Also, I never knew such a thing as a modular kit-style laptop existed! Thanks for the tip. My next laptop might just end up being a little less conventional :D

    Terrific! The only downside of the portability is having to carry a keyboard and mouse. Even the smallest takes a bit of space in the backpack. Maybe one of those folding keyboards? Or maybe one of those really thin ones, witha 3d bracket on the main unit to hold it?

      It's not very compact, but still it should barely fit into a compact backpack. The problem is navigation.
      Touchscreen on all three displays?
      Would be neat, but those legs and hinges would be wobbly.
      Keyboard and Trackpad?
      There's none. You won't be able to fit it into your bag, unless you get something hilariously small and un-ergonomic. Or you hope wherever you go there's a spare unit to borrow. Or you just don't use one and have no interactability.

  • Oliver Polden
    Oliver Polden Month ago

    I really like this and it’s great to challenge what’s required from a “laptop”. If you always have a desk to work on then there’s no reason this form factor shouldn’t exist. I did think the taking the iPad screens out, using display port cables and a driver board was perhaps unnecessary when you could use a USB-C cable direct into the iPad and use Duet although then you have a couple of redundant batteries and limitations from using Duet, it might only support one display. Lastly, having a display above a traditional laptop makes the ergonomics better and I think that would be a better commercial product.

      @Adam S. im all for piracy too, dont worry!

    • Adam S.
      Adam S. Month ago +1

      @Bullet Punch No, it's not piracy. Digital content requires no cost to be duplicated and if it has been published, then creator has been already remunerated. So no. It's not piracy. Even if it's not digital, there can't be piracy - how do you see paying Rembrandt for a copy of his painting? Who got robbed - because that's what piracy is - by copying his artwork (not even counterfeit)?
      Though I understand people publish their work in anticipation of FUTURE income - which is fair expectation, I admit - it doesn't mean they lost anything from what they gained already.
      If anything, one should absolutely punish unauthorized re-use (i.e. someone downloads someone's content and monetizing it further). This will take care of actual pirates.

      Also free market principles indicate that any product with an infinite supply (any type of digital data that can be infinitely copied and distributed) should effectively have 0 price in terms of market value.

    • Robotron Sage
      Robotron Sage Month ago +2

      Also the DMCA is an absolute joke and we should work on getting rid of it tbh. Everything was so much better when nobody took that sort of thing seriously. We would laugh at media companies for trying to ''curate'' their data into monetary exploits. The funny thing is, there are huge antitrust concerns with monetizable data, given you can infinitely copy and produce digital data at essentially ZERO cost, and you can't do that with other industries, so it should be unironically illegal to force monetization on digital (i.e, highly exploitable) data.

      Surface Books hinge has a perfect little gap for this to fold into

    I would love to see some post processing done on the 3d printed parts so they look a little less plasticky. Maybe some electroplating to get that true brass steampunk dyi perks look.

    A modern version of the Compaq luggable. 😂😂😂 This is a great start, can’t wait to see who makes it thinner and adds active cooling along with a better stand.

    First video if watched of this channel. Blown away by the idea, this has a crazy amount of potential - the nomad solution of the next ~laptop~ generation (needs a new name now)

    I would really like to see a more sophisticated design version of this. With a bit more resource it can become very neat.

    Great job, fascinating work as always! You make DIY look freaking easy.
    You should make a collab with LTT, and make a gaming rig from this design. :D
    (Just make it durable enough, Linus likes to drop things)

      @V van Zeller from my understanding the framework laptop has thunderbolt 4 which means that the extra usb-c port could be used with an eGPU, hence making it into a gaming system

    2.0 would be a colab with LTT. Linus is such a fan of Framework, he's invested heavily in it, and this would only help spread awareness of the goals Framework is trying to achieve

    This looks great. The only problem I have is that I think the USB ports would be hard to reach with USBs with weird sizes.

    With foldable screens, I'd like to see a portable monitor that folds like this, then out into a curved ultrawide monitor.

    I am pretty sure everybody at some point has wondered if there is a better way to design compact PCs with multiple monitors. But to actually act on it instead of ranting, and produce a device that is practical and yet so unique - you are someone that loves doing what you do and your passion shows.

    Instead of brass legs, it would be cool to have lags that unscrew to extend, and screw back in to conceal. Definitely an awesome project

      yes, not to sure about hinges, as a everyday luggable Item, like idea of the extendable legs, but as it meant to be used in the field as it where (office, hotel rooms etc.) where a really stable table are available that maybe the case, but where wobbly table is king, your going to have problems?
      (like it he build laptop, from almost scratch, with research, tech,. and a design departments, million pound/dollar budgets

    Awesome idea, and I like how the case turned out.
    But I was hoping you would make a stand with adjustable height. It could be fixed to a more sturdy backpanel, with the stand legs sitting at the bottom.

      @nonchip You know that the folding phones don't actually fold the displays flat either right?

      nonchip Month ago

      @hnewc1919 decades? if you really only use your phone 4-5 times a day, more like half a century! 45.6 years to be precise :P
      but i know plenty non-teens and non-girls and non-teen-girls that use their phone way more often, bringing the lifetime down into the "about as long as the battery" range (the shortest i've heard lately was like half a year, but that was because some sand got in between the hinge, which just sheared the screen in two).
      also no idea if phone use relates to marital status, but congrats? :P

    Dear Matt thank you for this video. Got a question different to what has already been said. Have you considered building say a 46 centimetre computer screen that connects to a laptop and has a built in touch screen, along with a built in camera and projector. This is my dream to see this happen as I think it would do more for office work whilst at home at least. Thank you for reading my message in advance Kindest Regards Justin Ray.

    Hi, just throwing idea. I've always thought that a laptop on which we could slide the screen on the side would allow it to be more centered between the keyboard an mouse. Allowing this portable setup to be more "video game playable" while approaching a desk setup positon for the user. Could you bring this to life ?!
