NEW TUTORIAL: Mini Raspberry Pi Handheld Notebook

NewImage

This is a Raspberry Pi notebook. Our 3D Printed enclosure turns the Pi 2 and a 3.5” PiTFT into a sweet retro mini laptop. The mini chiclet keyboard is both adorable and wireless. It features a trackpad, but you can also use the Touch screen on the PiTFT.

Rechargable through the PowerBoost 1000C, the 2000mAh battery fits between the screen and the Raspberry Pi. 3D Printed hinges attach to the enclosure, making this a tiny portable computer!

The 3.5″ PiTFT is much bigger and slower than the 2.8″ PiTFT and is not good to use with fbcp and certainly wont be able to run emulationstation or the like at any reasonable quality

Usage

The best use case for this project is for monitoring and controling prints, checking up on webcams or even streaming music. You can even play text adventures games like Zork!

Prerequisite Guides

Check out the following guides below to get a better understanding of the pin outs for the PiTFT and Powerboost 1000C.

Parts, Tool & Supplies

If you don’t have access to a 3D printer, you can send the files to a service or check with your local hackerspace/library.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I would love to see you guys make a kit version of this. For those of us without access to 3d printing and all.

    Cheers!
