Make your Raspberry Pi Portable #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi #iLuvPi2

From instructables user mathesen1097:

This is a very simple instructable that will show you how to put together a little portable Raspberry Pi. Watch the video for visual instructions:Video

-A Raspberry Pi

This could be any raspberry pi, but I chose the Raspberry Pi 2. If you use the Raspberry Pi 2, B+, or A+, than you will also need a micro SD card. For older Raspberry Pi models, you will need an SD card.

-Portable USB Power supply

-Project Enclosure:Could be anything you like, so long as everything still fits inside. Use your imagination

-4-40 Round Head screws and bolts

-Adafruits 2.8″ Capacitive Touchscreen PiTFT (NOTE: Could be any of Adafruits PiTFT series, I just chose this model)

-Keyboard and mouse


-Dremel with cutoff and sanding bit

-Drill with 7/64 or 1/8 drill bit

-Flathead Screwdriver

PiTFT 2.8″ TFT 320×240 + Capacitive Touchscreen – Raspberry Pi Model B: Our best-selling PiTFT 2.8″ display just got a fancy upgrade, now we have a version with a capacitive touchscreen! That’s right, instead of a resistive touchscreen, which requires a fingernail or stylus, you can now use a fingerpad. The screen looks much nicer, with a black bezel and glass overlay.
