I initially thought that battery would be the limiting factor but it seems like space is a bigger issue, since I'm now planning to mount the battery on the upper arm/bicep area.
Weight might be an issue, and losses in the USB cable might present efficiency problems, but it shouldn't be too bad
Other scenarios in which it would be cool:
* network issue shows up, arm pc user just jacks in to fix it
* haptic feedback mechanisms to periodically covertly transmit temperature, humidity, time
* automatic Bluetooth or 802.11 deauth/soft jamming
Potential use cases include:
* IRC on the go. IRC on Android kills me, mostly due to the virtual keyboard.
* Wireless pentesting and analysis
* GPS enhanced wireless analysis
* Portable SDR
* Coding on the go
I really, really want to make a forearm mounted computer. Raspberry Pi with a 7inch display and small keyboard and trackpad mounted on the forearm, 10,000 mAh battery on the upper arm.
Does anyone have experience with making stuff like this?

social media meta: convenience Show more
convenience is a red herring. facebook isn’t convenient. it’s an invasive creep and a vector for hate and everybody knows it.
they own the labor and materials to keep advanced services running; that is their advantage. the fediverse represents considerable infrastructure but admins and developers and contributors are still largely volunteers with rent to pay. marshaling resources remains a hard problem.
centralization isn’t convenient; it’s profitable.

IUI is a user interface library that bunds to fully native UI libraries on Windows, Mac, and GTK+ platforms like BSD and GNU/Linux.
This release revamps the API to use mutability markers in a more sensible way, as well as adding support for file open and save dialogues.
As always, thanks to my patrons for making this possible, and if you find my work useful please consider contributing.
Definitely True Fact™:
"pixel" and "voxel" are the diminutive forms of "pix" and "vox".
Their plurals are "pixlech" and "voxlech" respectively, and like all diminutives they are neuter.
Idea for a social network: micro"blogging" but based on a CAN (content addressable network) and, rather than always being sorted by time posts would be sorted by arbitrary criteria
