This is the Wirelessly Powered PiBook running the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. The tablet charges anywhere on the table which has a power transmitter underneath it. It works similarly to the Wirelessly Powered Tesla Desk Lamp I created previously.
The lower violet LED indicates that it is getting a 6.5MHz signal and the upper violet LED indicates that 5VDC is being supplied.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Hello all! I’m David, the maker behind the Wirelessly Powered PiBook and its power transmitting table. With the advent of viable, medium-distance wireless power I wanted to present this project to the DIY world for demonstration purposes. Many of our projects can be wirelessly powered at distances much greater than those currently achieved. Hopefully, affordable, DIY, A4WP-ready, wireless kits will become a reality soon. @Adafruit? wink, wink. Thanks for posting my project!
