Retro Pocket Sized TV #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

FQ69GHDJB6U569P MEDIUM

Here is an awesome mini tv project shared by Anders644PI on Instructables:

This guide shows you how to make and setup a retro-looking TV, with a Raspberry Pi, a Touchscreen and some 3D printed parts.

I have also posted the same guide on my website here.

You will need:

  • Raspberry Pi 3 (or Pi 2, B+ and A+ with WiFi dongle or ethernet cable plucked in)
  • Adafruit PiTFT 3.5″ Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi
  • 5V 2.4A Power Supply for Raspberry Pi
  • 4GB or higher Micro SD Card – An Emty USB Stick
  • Keyboard and a mouse – A connection to a monitor or TV
  • 3D printer and a spool of any color PLA (or you could use a 3D service like 3D Hubs to print it for you)
  • Glue of some sort (I used wood glue)
  • Grey spray paint (optional: you could just stick with the color of the filament)
  • Spool of wood filament (optional)
