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

@tindall I've seen some neat Steampunk versions of this in the past. The Datamancer (datamancer.com/) could probably make you one, but it'd cost a fortune.

It'd look amazing, though.

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

@tindall I'm working on something similar-ish but using a shoulder strap instead of forearm-mounted.


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?

I need to commission some icons for an open source package manager. If this is the kind of thing you might be interested in (pretty much any style welcome), please ping me.

It pays money. €€€€

The purpose of this RFC is to provide a framework for SIMD to be used on stable
Rust. It proposes stabilizing x86-specific vendor intrinsics, but includes the
scaffolding for other platforms as well as a future portable SIMD design

Just released 0.2 of the Improved User Interface library for Rust!

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.

Ever wanted an Urban Dictionary-like site for , , and general terms?

Me either. But someone made it and it's really cool, despite having a few bugs to iron out. hackterms.com/
