Have you seen the features of awesome mods using the newly launched Raspberry Pi portable computer since its launch? With that this Pi-to-Go Raspberry Pi mod would be the one of the best check out. Details after the jump!
When talking about gaming consoles – are generally candidates to go under a screwdriver for miniaturization into p[ortable packages, but here – Nathan Morgan has set himself to do something different: transform the hacker-friendly Raspberry Pi into a mobile rig. Finally, the Pi-to-Go created. The portable’s custom 3D-printed case packs a model B version Raspberry Pi, a 640 x 480 LCD screen and a QWERTY Keyboard with a built-in touchpad.
The new Pi-to-Go Raspberry Pi has created using the Google Sketch software and a 3D printer to create the case, which is thus equipped with a Raspberry Pi model B mini computer, a screen and keyboard stuffed into a 3D-printed case.
Storage on the Pi-to-Go internals include a Samsung-made 64GB SSD (with a 1GB swap partition), a rechargeable battery that provides more than 10 hours of juice, a 4GB SD card and support for WiFi and Bluetooth.
“The LCD I used is from an after market backup camera system that can be installed in a car. The screen is a low resolution and I hope to find a better upgrade for my next version of the mobile RPi to-go. So for this proof of concept, it works just fine. The screen is 3.5? using a 4:3 aspect ratio. It uses a composite input and is able to display a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.”
Morgan’s even published build instructions, 3D printer files and a parts list necessary for replicating the box. Interested in building your very own Pi-to-Go Raspberry Pi all the components required to make it, not accounting for the 3D-printed case, cobbling together your own Pi-to-Go setup should ring up at just shy of $400.
