Kerry Scharfglass was finding typical portable computers difficult to work with in confined spaces, such as on a plane or on a train. So, he decided to build his own which he called the Commute Deck.

The Raspberry Pi is the heart of the machine. He’s ended up with something which is part-laptop and part-cyberpunk device, although I’m not sure how great it will be for the restricted width of a plane seat! Read more over at Make.
