As I start on the most critical stage of my design education, the final project, I was asked to select any 3 topics about which I feel is a big deal to me or something that I could sustain with for next 6 months of my life.
Selected topics later had to be mind mapped individually.
As a big technology enthusiast, one of the topics I chose is ‘Modular Computers’. As the name suggests it was based around the modular side of computer components and its assembly. My goal here was to present a more sustainable design which should be future proof (at least for 5 years) and mainly based on a centered console.
Meaning no wires and finicky connectors but just components which could be attached to the main hardware. Something like LEGO blocks. Additional ideas were to make this design a hybrid of Laptop and Desktop. Since most of us now have multiple PC’s, I was trying to come to a single user single PC environment combined with an All-in-One PC. But as small and major tech-giants have already been experimenting on fully Modular Computers like
Finally I decided to drop this idea because of the dynamic nature of the computer industry and the design would’ve needed a big investment and expertise from the area.
