Back in January, we told you about a DIY enthusiast who had created his own, fully-functional wooden tablet, powered by the Raspberry Pi chipset.

Looks like some sort of detonator. I wouldn't carry this phone into the airport :)

Compared to the nowadays devices, it looks like Frankenstein's Monster. Well, it might be useful for learning purpose, not sure for what else.
