How environmentally damaging is PV panel production? How is silicon produced?
I would like to enable some sort of local mesh network thing so that third-party infrastructure isn’t strictly required.
This should be
The lid should have a solar panel on one length/width plane and a screen on the opposite. There should also be space for WiFi (and maybe LoRa) antennas - an external connector for LoRa could be added later, like an antenna dongle.
The spellbook is cool, but could you replace the back panel with a solar panel?
Could you replace the RPi with a RISCV board, like a HiFive1?
Could you find a laptop/netbook size/grade eInk display?
Could you write a custom operating system for it in Rust? This one's a long shot, but it would be a lot of fun.
