testing MNT Reform battery/power reporting firmware+SPI kernel driver in development by NanoCodeBug

MNT Pocket Reform is coming!

Here are all the technical details that are nailed down so far: mntre.com/media/reform_md/2022

You can also sign up for email updates on the project at the end of the page.

Ana Dantas returned for industrial design. The snazzy 3D art was done by Philipp Broemme. Illustrations by Anri Hennies.

natively running 9front / Plan 9 from Bell Labs on my MNT Reform

after trying out basically all linux audio creation tools, i settled on MusE, which is already 20+ years in development. not super pretty, but UI works as expected and it's fast, even on a constrained system.

for lack of another SD card at home i couldn't test it myself yet, but here's the first image of Plan 9 / 9front for MNT Reform, if you'd like to test: felloff.net/usr/cinap_lenrek/9

playing with stargate DAW on MNT Reform, it's fun! very fast (with qt6) and simple UI. i like that unlike Ardour, every clip/pattern has a focused editor, and you can build patterns from samples. also has a simple wave editor built-in.

so... do you want a cute open hardware 7" computer with mechanical keyboard and optional LTE/5G connectivity?! what would you do with it?

first routing complete, tomorrow double check and BOM checks

someone have a rp2040 delay loop for nanoseconds lying around? i wanna do a quick test to drive SK6805 leds which have this encoding

I had two evenings planned off from boat work for some personal errands. The first of those is now out of the way: MNT Reform DIY #187 reporting for duty! Now to get another OS on here (with a kernel that understands how to talk to this Intel wireless card... for which antennae are arriving tomorrow)

@mntmn you've made one hell of a piece of kit here :) only one kinda confusing part in the assembly instructions (understanding that I needed to twist the OLED by its ribbon cable)

Plan9 may just be coming to the MNT Reform thanks to work by cinap_lenrek
