This kit received a complete over-hall regarding its structural durability for in-classroom use & substantial reduction of the BOM cost while improving over-all quality of components.

RE-ENGINEERED.

  • Redesigned support structure for 9" screen integration with a1024x600 screen resolution
  • Re-engineered wooden pieces for 200% durability improvement
  • Redesign of electrical wiring to enhance user experience & reduce production failure
  • Introduced new, longer lasting battery

KEY FEATURES.

HIGHLIGHT: SPEAKER ASSEMBLY.

User testing revealed an opportunity to teach students how to assemble from scratch their own DIY speaker, amplifier board, & volume control dial. The redesigned greatly improves the computer’s overall sound quality, building experience, & how teachers discuss the concept of sound energy.

KID PROOF.

The unlimited rebuilding & durability is a must have for multi-semesters of use (bring on the drop tests). The wooden pieces no longer splinter during the reassembly process due to increased edge widths, fillet edges, & maximized hole distances. All tolerance based fits were removed to significantly reduce production failure rates. The overall improved structural integrity has increase the life cycle by 5+ years.
