Mainboard Terminal Computer Framework
Penk Chen’s Mainboard Terminal may look like something from a science fiction movie, but it’s actually an all-in-one computer. This isn’t a high-powered gaming PC, as it uses a Framework Mainboard rather than a traditional motherboard and hardware components. This Mainboard was then placed inside a custom 3D-printed case, connected to an OLKB Preonic mechanical keyboard.

Unlike Raspberry Pi, the Framework Mainboard can run x86 operating systems, like Windows 10 x86, BeOS, NetBSD, Unix, TinyOS, Sun Solaris and more. Penk’s Mainboard Terminal is running Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with a few tweaks to enable the circular display to run properly. Sure, the user interface doesn’t quite look right in such a display, but the novelty science fiction aspect is most certainly there. This computer would definitely go well with the BMW i Vision Circular EV.

Everything is (loosely) held together by 5x2mm magnets in my build (again, for purely aesthetic reasons). You might want to add holes for screws & other cutouts to utilize those USB4 ports. Paint color used in the build: Tamiya paint PS-57 (Pearl White) and TS-30 (Silver Leaf),” said Chen.
