As a follow-up to his cube PC, Ikejima – who btw is the same person helping me a lot with the exotic keyboard matrix write-ups – came up with the Egg laptop.

When I was a kid, I drew my perfect laptop PC into a notebook. At that time, I couldn’t have the laptop. But now I can start my project! – Ikejima.

This retro clamshell style laptop conceals a 12x4 handwired ortho keyboard (16mm spacing to achieve an even more compact layout).

The LCD above the keyboard is used to indicate battery voltage.

Instant retro yellowing was achieved by using the banana color PLA filament of Polyterra.
