Twitter user Koshiyoda went above and beyond when her four-year-old asked her to make a computer. The result is this incredibly realistic laptop.


The details on the cardboard laptop are incredible. Just look at how each letter and Japanese character is painstakingly added on each key. Instead of an Apple logo, Koshiyoda created a cute little strawberry one. The “screen” is a white sheet of paper on which her kid can draw. I love that the project really helps spark a child’s creativity.

According to IT Media, the whole project took around four hours, spread out over five days.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
