Hey guys,

Just want some community feedback on this. Most of these things are already in the queue to some degree. Just trying to prioritize...

What about the Yandex Phone? If you don't know what Yandex is it's one of Russia's biggest tech companies, this is their first semi-experimental phone. Other than the gimmicky Yotaphone (which got bought by a Chinese brand), it's the first Russian try at making a smartphone. It came out about two months ago.

It's only like $180 there, I think you can find it for $290 on ebay. No one is really reviewing it.

I would love to see Linus run a whole week on a linux based Laptop as his daily driver. And review the experience Before and after the week. See if he could replace Windows for Linux.

I mainly want to see weird things done with tech (modding, building cases, etc.), and would like to see a DIY motherboard. Even if it need to have another motherboard salvaged.

How about a silly video about the 'foot catch method' but with some actual testing, maybe put an egg in a little box to represent a sensitive computer component then drop it from hip height with foot catch and without foot catch. I'm not sure that @LinusTech would be able to star in the video because sandals, but it could still be fun. A title like 'Footloose or how to reduce fall damage' perhaps. Start with a bad Infomercial style black and white opening 'Oh no, you dropped X again! That'll cost $10,000!' and then Linus pops in and the color returns and he says 'but wait there's a way' and then he drops the thing and catches it with his foot, cut to sponsor roll, return to a more serious Linus talking about mitigating impact damage with well timed foot work, explaining how decades of playing hacky sack have honed his skills to that of a veritable foot ninja, then onto an explanation of the very scientific testing using an egg inside a box, how it'll be dropped from the counter height of whatever meters onto the floor 3 times, then same height but with his patented foot catch method 3 times, cut to montage of hilariously kicking egg in box across room at least once, and results showing that in neither case did the egg break because modern packaging is pretty good. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE, they go for the bonus winner takes all round, Linus gets dangerous and goes BARE EGG! Bare egg falls onto floor, SPLAT! Linus drops bare egg off counter and....slow mo...does it survive the patented Linus ninja foot save maneuver? FIND OUT AFTER THIS MESSAGE FROM MACK WELDON.

It actually works, I was doing it before I watched LTT.

Might be interesting to get a nividia jetson nano developer kit. Then try make either a Linux/lakka/Android box or a tiny windows system (not sure windows would be possible). If windows worked comparison to performance of a Intel nuc would be interesting. The performance increase over a raspberry pi 3 would be interesting to see. Also if windows works can it run crysis????

 
One final thought get Alex to make into a laptop or portable game system. aka LMG LTT XP
