NEW TUTORIAL: Pi-Top Assembly

The Pi-Top is a cute kit that lets you add a monitor, keyboard, trackpad, to your Pi while making it easy to access hardware for DIY experimentation!

Why Pi-Top?

  • The Pi is an excellent catcher for household IoT data. With built-in screen / keyboard it makes it that much easier to debug code issues.
  • Battery backup helps avoid nasty file system crashes should the power go out.
  • Arduinos can be programmed from the Pi-Top and there is plenty of room under the acrylic screen to keep a mini development board.
  • KiCad can runs on Raspberry Pi. It performs reasonably well on version 3.
  • The battery life of the Pi-Top is awesome at 12 hours.
  • A neat little console environment for the Pi will clean up your workspace.
  • The Pi-Top seems like the kind of laptop that would be pure spectacle should it make an appearance in a trendy coffee shop.

Come with us as we put one together….
