[M] Tetent Concept3

A project log for Teti [gd0022]

A 3-in-1 desktop because I can't build a 2-in-1 laptop.

Wow it looks like it's all coming together. I've composited the render similar to how it's been done for the PS5 below:

Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) Standard Edition 825GB Console – Mulbison ...

Just like the inspirations.

I will write a more detailed log in the #Tetent [gd0090] project, but I was seeing if adding a copper line would tie the look together with Teti and I think it does and I had to write about it ASAP. 

The stripe doesn't go all the way around the back (similar to Teti) and I think that preserves the pure white look from the 3rd person perspective:

I also like the larger diamond squares as it looks more modern than if I had a speaker grille with squares the same size as Teti. It also looks like a brand image decision and not a generic grille. I also think that, from the first person perspective, there's enough copper to break up the otherwise bland looking white shape.

Lastly, I've added the same reflective LCDs on the bottom. The BOM of this "controller" is over £200, so I don't think it's too bad to add 10% for the satisfying convinience of not having to worry about device orientation, especially when Tetent is in a pocket. Just grab, calibrate and type.
