Chonky Palmtop

The Chonky Palmtop by Daniel Norris is a cyberdeck with an integrated Corne.
Published March 5, 2022

Daniel has been working on this project for a couple months: a Pi 4, 7" touchscreen, and an integrated split keyboard (Corne) with Miryoku layout that folds away to the footprint of the display.

It's about the same footprint as an old eee 701 laptop, but much thicker, hence the "chonky"... :D – a8ksh4.

The buttons and switch to the right of the display are used to control the LCD menu, check battery voltage, and switch power on and off.

More photos, stl files, and build info are posted in gitlab here:
