We've all heard the adage "If you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself." What do you do when you feel repeatedly frustrated by the design choices in modern laptops? Take the DIY approach, of course! I'll talk thru my quest to design a machine that's perfect for me, starting with the keyboard and working up to the Atreus Deck: an open-source tiny laptop design that repurposes outmoded yet capable consumer electronics destined for a landfill and turns it into a productive handmade device.
