Pocket Computers, added in 1.6, are computers than are held as an inventory item, allowing you to use them on the move. To use a Pocket Computer, hold it in your hand and press the "use" key (this is a right-click by default). Both advanced and standard versions are available. It is also possible to craft Pocket Computers with wireless modems built in, which allows you to control your machines from anywhere or even open doors for you without having to do anything! The modem is attached to the back of the Pocket Computer, so to use it, wrap it with peripheral.wrap( "back" ).
When removing from your inventory (dropping, moving in to chest, etc) the computer will stay on for 3-4 seconds. After that time it will turn it self off, you will not lose any data.
If the computer your program is running on is a Pocket Computer 'pocket' will be a blank table. For example, to check if your program is running on Pocket Computer do:
if pocket then print('Running on a Pocket Computer') else print('Running on a standard Computer') end
Pocket Computers have a resolution of 26 pixels/characters horizontally by 20 pixels/characters vertically.
