In general, get something running and then customize over time. The smallest customizations can make all the difference in useability. For example, the simple act of adding velcro to hold the Twiddler on the satchel allows for much better access to the keyboard and makes the device look less awkward.


How to build the display mount

The first thing to customize is the display mount. The one Reflection Tech/Phoenix provides is, literally, painful. This boom mount stays in place by providing pressure on the head. This pressure alone can cause headaches. In addition, the display bounces around too much due to the boom mount and takes too long to readjust (too many degrees of freedom).
