Electronics+Design project to make a device that automatically copies files from one inserted device to another with an incorporated SD card reader (both sizes).
This project started because of my combined passions for drone photography, travel, and not wanting to bring a laptop just to backup SD cards in case the drone falls off a cliff. Since I always bring a backup battery too, this seemed like a good combination. Plus now I can solar charge my battery when backpacking!
Automatic file copier with SD card slots
LED indicators for file transfer
3 Switches, USB power, auto (PI) power, and auto-transfer.
~1 full cell phone battery charge
Solar Panel battery recharger
Linux computer (raspberry pi zero) with USB slots for keyboard/mouse.
Portable IoT driver (GPIO pins are exposed underneath)
Fully detailed assembly instructions are still a work-in-progress.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
