Hang Your Raspberry Pi On The Back Of Your TV With Velcro #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Organize your Raspberry Pi media center with velcro via life hacker
The Raspberry Pi makes a dandy media center, but it isn’t exactly a “clean” look, especially with all those cables. For easy access with a clutter-free look, velcro the Pi to the back of your TV.
This isn’t exactly an earth-shattering tip, but it’s a nice little improvement I made to my Pi setup in the bedroom: I got a short, flat HDMI cable, some 3M command strips I had lying around (though Velcro would work just as well), and stuck the little device right above the ports on my TV. Along with a bit of extra cable management, the setup looks much less cluttered, and I still have easy access to the Pi if I need it.
