Hardware Toys from JSAUX
I've recently backed a few hardware projects on Kickstarter... and given the lead time between backing and the eventual delivery, I sort of forget that I have actually ordered things! So, it is always going to be a big surprise when I get a notification that something has been delivered to my PO Box and is waiting to be delivered. Plus, there are so many spam notifications in Australia that I assume that it is just spam and I don't bother to race down to the post office to pick up the package.
... and so it was the case with this delivery. I had no idea what it was... and when I picked it up, it was much bigger than anything that I was expecting. What the hell was it???
... and when I opened up the package, I was one happy camper! I had backed a Kickstarter project by JSAUX that was originally for a docking hub... but I decided to upgrade to a complete set of goodies!
So, this was the original purchase... the upgraded OmniCase 2, in the PRO version with extra ports and cable storage. My laptop is starting to get a bit long in the tooth, and I have noticed that the SD card reader is a bit unreliable... and I still use an ethernet cable occasionally as well. So, to have all that functionality there in a case that is also a storage box... well, pretty handy! Well, handy for a nerd like me!
When I get around to clearing all the junk on my desk, I can get back to using it again... the desktop has not been turned on for about half a year, and so it is due for a good deal of updating. But there was a time that I used it... and often in conjunction with my laptop as well. So, it will be handy to have this laptop stand as a way to declutter a little bit. I've never used a laptop stand before, so I'm curious to see if I will actually like this or not!
... and finally, the OmniCase stand for the Steam Deck. The Steam Deck peripherals are what took JSAUX mainstream with successful hits for the gamer nerds. Having a dock and charging station will be pretty handy... again, mostly to declutter my working and sleeping spaces. But I'm also curious about docking the Steam and playing co-op games with my girls on the TV! A sort of overpowered Switch!
So, all of that came through in the mail not so long ago... but I'm on tour again, so I will have to wait to try everything out. Lots of mini reviews coming up as I test out each piece of hardware kit!
