Thelio Animates System76 Open-source Desktop Launch
Stay updated on Linux, maker projects, and open-source tech here at Electromaker.io! What better way to announce a product launch than with storytelling and a spaceship launch. While the final hardware has yet to be announced, forthcoming System76 desktops are open-source and feature optimized airflow, open hardware, and a chassis molded by CEO Carl Richell.
To gear up for its open-source desktop announcement, System76 provides a series of four animated videos, released weekly. These reveal design updates hidden inside a game element of the narrative. You'll find two characters in the four-part video series: there's Zoe, the Pop!_OS bot, and an engineer, Tenzen.
In each of the four shorts, Tenzen and Zoe visit worlds which show the opposite of open-source. Therefore, these videos not only offer insight into the forthcoming slew of open-source desktops System76 is poised to offer, but also an exploration of the value of open-source community. Check out the first video and stay tuned for more, as well as pre-orders starting in October 2018!
