Updates to my Model M battery laptop

I put an intel compute stick inside one of my Model M keyboards. I wanted to make it a ridiculous battery powered laptop but also able to be docked at home to a TV too so I added a little screen.

Integrating a computer in a keyboard is not an entirely new concept but is certainly something you don't see much of these days. Now integrate a battery in the case, add a solenoid to further annoy co-workers and add Bluetooth capability to connect to mobile devices.

Very nicely done!
I had the idea to attach a tablet stand to my Model M and connect the keyboard to the tablet, for a similar effect.
