    Looks like a itx psu or something used in rackmount servers,
    Op
    Open the psu and take some pictures, might be a cheapo fix :)

    How many kilometers have the keyboard cable? It looks quite long in videos.

    I always wanted the lapboard. Does the seller still have hardware available?

    I really do like that keyboard. Probably one of the most enticing boards I've seen.
    The mouse has me wondering when it comes to how comfortable it is to grip.

    I'd love to be put in touch with the seller if you could. I'd love to pick up one of these units if he still has them for sale!

    Unfortunately, I think he is sold out. I wanted to buy another one but was unable to because I believe he only had 9 to begin with.

    I'm fairly certain he doesn't have anymore of the consoles. I bought the first Phantom console one he listed. I asked him a lot of questions and offered to buy anything Phantom related he still had. At thr time, he told me that he only had 3 of the prototype consoles left and nothing else Phantom related except for a few of the lapboards. I followed up several times over a few weeks just in case he found something else, but it appears it's all gone. As for the lapboards, they look cool and its a nice concept, but I don't recommend them for everyday use.

    The 3 consoles went in the $625-$660 USD each range (shipped) with a lap board included. A handful of lap boards were also sold individually for approximately $60 USD (shipped). I believe the prototype lap board sold yesterday along with a copy of the Infinium business plan and some related documentation for $500 USD plus shipping.

    Not trying to resurrect an old topic, Just wondering do these consoles actually do anything? If not, $650 is a bit much for a useless paperweight.

    If you were to find one, keep it.
    Even if it was useless, I'd keep it.
    Then again, Its an opinion.

    Does that mean these consoles do not do anything? Not even run basic computer programs?

    They boot to the OS and Phantom shell. Work needs to be done to get them to get in to the interesting bits of the shell now that the phantom backend services are long gone.
