Richard Sutherland's framedeck is his take on the slab style computers like the TRS-80 model 100 – using the Framework motherboard.

Richard aka brickbots made and published framedeck, a cyberdeck built with the framework mainboard.
It's my take on the slab style computers that were somewhat popular before the world settled on clamshell designs for portable computers. I really wanted a TRS-80 model 100 when I was young so this sort of design was a big influence.
The keyboard part of the project uses a custom PCB, probably the author's slabV, with an elite-C microcontroller. This provides the interface from the key matrix and trackball to the mainboard.
The custom PCB also has a power header connected to the raw USB pins of the elite-C which provides power for the LCD panel.
