If you enjoy tinkering and building projects with your new credit card sized Raspberry Pi mini PC find when you start adding peripherals to its ports the whole system becomes a little unwieldy. You might be interested in a new project which has been created to transform a Raspberry Pi mini PC into a Mini-ITX Motherboard.
Once the Raspberry Pi added to the new Fairywren board the system measures 17 x 17 cm in size and can be equipped with a number of modules depending on your preferences. Watch the video after the jump to see how the Fairywren board can help your Raspberry Pi become more manageable.
“To get a fully functioning Raspberry Pi system, you need to find 5V micro-USB power supply, SD card, keyboard and mouse, monitor, network connection. And maybe plus a USB hub and an external hard drive, etc. Oh, don’t forget the power supplies of the monitor and the USB hub. My desktop is always full of these accessories, cables and power supplies, sometimes I can hardly find a place to put my mouse 🙁
One day, I was angry. I put all these things in a spare Mini-ITX case. And hey, it looked better! So how about build all the annoying stuffs in a single motherboard, and put the motherboard in the Mini-ITX case?”
The Raspberry Pi Fairywren board project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
