Hi, some of you may have already read my post on the tough case I developed for the Pi. I have now launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this case to the users. The case houses a 7 inch display and all USB, GPIO, Analog audio out, Micro SD and Ethernet can be accessed from the case top. All brack...

Re: Break out 7" display case

So after refining my design slightly and doing some bench testing, the tough pi (what I'm calling my case) has not failed and is still functioning correctly. I've ensured all ports function correctly and have also utilised the GPIO to create a telepresence robot. Everything is going good and it has ...

Re: Break out 7" display case

I ordered basically a micro sd extension online from China, $3 AUD. I've had no issues with it, the ribbon cable on it is approximately 300mm long, bit excessive for what I needed but better to have the excess available if I need it, there are smaller ones available and just be sure to read the item...

Re: Break out 7" display case

So after a bit of time not being able to work on my project, I finally got some days off to finish my case. I ordered some 4000mah Li-on batteries, however in order to fit these in to my 2/3rd's finished project I would of had to redesigned almost everything (maybe an addition for my next case along...

Re: Break out 7" display case

Mocked up the power circuit, bypassed the power switch just to ensure setup is working. No issues, these shots were with the Pi running on a 12v li-po. Received more components today, just waiting for the weekend to print some mounts to make the power circuit permanent.

Re: Break out 7" display case

Here's some photos of my current progress, the power circuit is not complete so I couldn't power it on and still waiting on components to hook up Ethernet, GPIO and Composite. However all USB ports and micro SD slot are working.

Break out 7" display case

Hi, my names Brett, I'm currently living in Australia and I've been playing around with Raspberry Pi for a little over 2 years. I've never really moved past using my Pi for emulation of gaming consoles and running a media centre, both things my children enjoy and wish they could take on the road wit...
