One of the hardware projects I'm really interested in at the moment is the MNT Reform. Just recently they had a quick update, and I really like the direction it's going.
Modern laptops have secret schematics, glued-in batteries, and mystery components all over. But Reform is the opposite – it invites both curious makers and privacy aware users to take a look under the hood, customize the documented electronics, and 3D-print their own parts.
I'm really looking forward to hearing more on this project.
