My name is @Michael_Richards I stumbled onto Framework when I was trying to figure out whether or not I could use a Rasperry Pi into a daily computing device. My research into Linux, affordability, useablility, components, repairability led me to Framework.
I am currently without a computer and writing this on a - just out of warranty - iPad (this unit is actually the warranty replacement for the one I purchased). The unit is flexing and screen is showing microfractures… anyone know how to easily AND cheaply fix an iPad Air 3? It’s just not feasible…
There is a better way, and I love that the Framework team is taking it on.
Ergonomics is a huge passion of mine. Not just the body-machine-OS interface but also how does a device affect socio-economic status of the individual involved in it’s use and production? How does a product/device affect the liveability of the organisms (including the user) in the environment (Earth) in which it exists?
