    Oh it's just the case then? When they can print out the PCBs etc I'll be impressed :-) Von Neumann machines FTW.

    WTF!?

    What is the merit of this? It will be expensive to 3d print something so big and thick. What will they learn? How to wire up a keyboard, how to plug in the USB cable.

    The power circuitry is the only remotely hard bit, the battery and charging control.
