There's very little that's practical about these paper circuits. Oh, except that they can be printed out as a template and glued directly to a cardboard base. From there, builders can trace markings with wire and the circuit practically builds itself (the link here has some cool music boards for the aspiring eletroneers among you to try out). But in terms of building a personal Batcomputer out of nothing more than processed trees...you might want to invest in technologies that won't go up in flames when the Penguin ashes his cigarette.

So there I am, 10,000km from home in a foreign country (whose language I don't speak) covering a trade show by myself, and I realise the power brick on my XPS 13 is busted. This is a disaster.

And what's even worse is that my work XPS is the last generation without support for charging over USB-C, and because Spain doesn't give a shit about Dell, there was no replacing it (trust me I tried).
With Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, trying to decide if you want to get in on the latest Pokémon game is a relatively straightforward affair.
