Great new kickstarter to help expand your RPi neatly:
Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer, and it’s extremely affordable. Part of the reason for this small size and low cost is that some components are not included with the board. To get a fully functioning Raspberry Pi system, you need to find 5V micro-USB power supply, SD card, keyboard and mouse, monitor, network connection. And maybe plus a USB hub and an external hard drive, etc. Oh, don’t forget the power supplies of the monitor and the USB hub.
Now look at the stuffs on your table. I guess they don’t look neat, do they? Perhaps you reckon it’s not too bad. But to me, or a person who has to work with the Raspberry Pi everyday, I have to face this issue. My desktop is always full of these accessories, cables and power supplies, sometimes I can hardly find a place to put my mouse 🙁
One day, I was angry. I put all these things in a spare Mini-ITX case. And hey, it looked better! So how about build all the annoying stuffs in a single motherboard, and put the motherboard in the Mini-ITX case? It’s probably a good idea! Our gifted engineer started working. The first version of the design had been finished in only couple of days. After another 5 weeks, I got a functional prototype of the motherboard (The one you see in the video).
