I’m really excited about this thing. But I couldn’t quite get a sense of how it might feel. What’s 1.5lbs like in the hands? So I made a mockup:
Obviously it’s not metal and glass, and therefore not as rigid, but I love how this thing feels. Ingredients:
- 1 copy of Ellen Lupton’s Thinking with Type, which has about the right dimensions
- 2 thin pieces of packing cardboard, cut to specs
- 30 quarters for ballast
Mine came out to 680 grams, right on par with the wifi-only model. Your results may vary, but that’s what the quarters are for.
