This design was highly based off of a VT100, a computer terminal made in the 1980s. My client wanted a design that had the attributes of a Fallout 4 computer terminal, so I went for a more realistic Computer Terminal design, with no connected keyboard since that was going to have an external one. I wanted the LED matrix to be shown while keeping the terminal aesthetic, so I added it right next to the real screen for real time view and easy of use, so that the user didn't have to turn their head up or down to view their program in action. The whole design in mostly hollow. I made it this Big to keep the old fashioned style of thicker components, but didn't have anything to put in so I left it as it was.
I updated my client during the design process, and loved the slide in, slide out modularity of it. If any of the components had a problem, it would be easy to replace as most of the parts were "temporarily in place". He seemed satisfied with the design as it was extremely unique as in mimicking the style of a retro computer. The overall idea was actually inspired by my friend Xander, who made a apple computer for his Candlelight design, and gave me the idea to do the same for this project.
