Raspberry Training and RetroGaming Briefcase @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi

If Q from MI6 made a Raspberry Pi trainer, this would be it. It fits in a briefcase and it’s got all you need to learn Reaspberry Pi, engage in some retrogaming, and solder up some prototypes. Here’s more from Abel Rodriguez via Hackaday:

I’ve used an old briefcase to make a portable Raspberry trainer, to teach me Python and try to teach my kid some Scratch. I’ve fitted 48 18650 cells to power all, it’s a little heavy but it last a lot of time, and also due I want to use a portable 24 iron solder. There are three power supplies, one buck-boost from the battery to 24V and two little ones to supply 5V to the LCD and the Raspberry. Also a battery monitor to know how much remains and the temperature. The raspberry hdmi is connected to a portable monitor of 13 inches, it’s an IPS screen and has a very good illumination, also it powers from a USB C with 5V 3A I’ve used an USB SSD to put all the roms for the Retropie, and it works perfectly. The iron solder is a SQ-001, that works with 24V ad heats up very fast. The raspberry GPIO connector is wired to a little protoboard that will help to connect some devices. A keyboard also is stored under the lid, were the batteries and power supplies are.

See project!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
