Lcd display sounds nice. It could show all kinds of widget information,
cpu temps, battery status, wlan status, a symbol for unread mail …
I often miss those when working with full screen programs on a laptop
nice. you’re right, it doesn’t actually need full lcd, even a small e-ink panel would be sufficient. maybe one of those is small is enough that it could sit flat on the surface of the card. wouldnt be much space, but enough for showing maybe battery, sound and time widgets.
I was thinking that if I’m not using all the 4 modules, keeping the components cool would be my priority. A fan module helping with the thermal exhaustion or a heatsink module (most likely not efficient tho) can be a really nice addition.
…my brain didn’t quite jump to the same place it was supposed to: simply flip your laptop upside down and balance a circuit board on the bottom of the expansion card for a convenient soldering experience on the go!
In fact, maybe if we overclock the CPU high enough we can skip the expansion card entirely
