The Reform is a modular portable computer project by Lukas "mntmn" Hartmann (electronics/software) and Ana Dantas (industrial design). It is centered around an NXP i.MX6 SoC (to be upgraded by i.MX8) and 4GB RAM. The idea is to give the owner total control and freedom using and modifying their device, avoiding binary blobs (by using FOSS drivers) and spying components. All components will be fully documented and reproducible with mainstream maker equipment. I will briefly show the new prototype #2 during the talk.
