Mobile Raspberry Pi Computer: Build your own portable Pi-to-Go

Mobile Raspberry Pi Computer: Build your own portable Pi-to-Go
Aw, yes, the Raspberry Pi Computer, a credit card size mini PC that only cost $35. There are so many possibilities and uses for these small nano PCs. People have made them into PVRs (personal video recorders), retro gaming machines, weather stations, in-car PCs, jukeboxes, and so many more creative ideas. When I started this project four weeks ago, I just wanted to see if it was possible to make an ultra portable, mobile Raspberry Pi that you can take to-go. As I was building my Pi-to-Go I kept saying to myself, it would be cool if it had this, and then I would find a way to make it happen. My mobile Raspberry Pi Computer is now complete and because this is an open source project I wanted to show you everything, including how to build one yourself. Just a quick blurb about myself. LCD Screen The LCD I used is from an after market backup camera system that can be installed in a car. Battery Pack First off, be very careful when messing with lithium-ion batteries.

Download & Setup OctoPrint is currently available in the following forms: as part of a specialized distribution for the RaspberryPi called “OctoPi” as a source package A binary package for Debian-based Linux-systems is currently in the works. Raspberry Pi: Up and Running For those of you who haven’t yet played around with Raspberry Pi, this one’s for you. In this how-to video, I walk you through how to get a Raspberry Pi up and running. It’s the first in a series of Raspberry Pi videos that I’m making to accompany Getting Started with Raspberry Pi, a book I wrote with Shawn Wallace.

RAPIRO on RPi Website A new Kickstarter was launched this morning: check out the video first, and then I’ll tell you about what we’ve seen first-hand of the project. We met Shota Ishiwatari at the three-day Raspberry Jam in Tokyo in May. He’s an established inventor of very, very cool stuff – you may have read about his Nekomimi cat ears, which were featured all over the internet when they came out last year. Documentation - Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge Article Index Go to Index1. The Shield. Infosheets - We have created a collection of quick reference sheets dealing with a variety of Linux and Internet topics. Below are links to the original documents as well as a screenshot of each document. These documents are based on the original ones created by Mark Krenz (Suso Banderas) in 2000 and 2001.

Quick start guide What you will need Required SD CardWe recommend an 8GB class 4 SD card – ideally preinstalled with NOOBS. You can buy a card with NOOBS pre-installed, or you can download it for free from our downloads page.Display and connectivity cablesAny HDMI/DVI monitor or TV should work as a display for the Pi . For best results, use one with HDMI input, but other connections are available for older devices. FishPi Now that Raspberry Pi's are getting into the hands of folks around the world, we're starting to see all kinds of interesting projects. And in the case of Greg Holloway, his goal is a little more ambitious than most — to use a Raspberry Pi to create an autonomous vehicle that will cross the Atlantic Ocean. The aptly named FishPi project is currently in the proof of concept phase, but the final version will be powered by a 130 watt solar panel and includes features like a GPS, servo controller board for driving the rudder and motor, a compass, and a camera. The current test version is 20-inches long and features the Raspberry Pi itself housed in a plastic sandwich container.

berryboot [BerryTerminal] For people short on SD cards: Berryboot is a simple boot selection screen for ARM computers like the Raspberry Pi, that allows you to put multiple Linux distributions on a single SD card. In addition it allows you to put the operating system files on an external USB hard drive instead of on the SD card itself.

Pi NXT Robot Inspired by the amazing things the Boreatton Scouts group are doing with their Raspberry Pis, as well as a conversation with David Lamb and Andrew Attwood – two colleagues of mine at LJMU – I thought it was about time I actually tried to use my Pi for something other than recompiling existing software. I'm not a hardware person. Not at all.
