I was thinking it would be a fun project to create a mini computer with its own wifi antenna and router and possibly linuxcoin os

linuxcoin

and maybe sell it on etsy and state that you also accept bitcoins for it.  Smiley

How about a bitcoin computer in a bitcoin tin? (I am not clear on the iconic-ness of altoids as a symbol of bitcoins...)

If plastic is OK, I could print up a coin-shaped container for the computer, with the BTC symbol on top, as long as the diameter doesn't need to be larger than 100 mm.

edit: now that I think about it, a tin should be doable as well by printing the shape wanted in ABS and hammering some suitably thin sheet metal into shape over it... Though I haven't done anything like that since grade school. Would probably end up looking quite... hand-made if I did it.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

Only the graphic designer(s) / sculptors who actually design it know for sure, but the rest of us will recognise it when we see it.
