MobileWill: Raspberry Pi and Motorola Lapdock #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

RaspberryPi MotorolaLapdock MobileWill

Some great Adafruit gear in a Raspberry Pi LapDock project from William, a past participant in our Show & Tell show!

He shared his project with us for suiting up a LapDock as a Raspberry Pi computer:

Originally, the LapDock is a LCD/keyboard/battery where you can dock your Motorola phone to turn it into a desktop. The phone runs in webtop mode with full browser and it gives access to the phones’ apps. The high price tag was most likely the cause for extremely limited sales so they clearanced them. Good thing for us! If you can’t find one, check eBay, you should be able to at least find the one for the Atrix, as they all will work. I haven’t tested the battery life but I am hearing a solid 5-6 hours. I will let you know how long it lasts for me.
