We have featured many DIY Raspberry Pi pocket computer projects here on Geeky Gadgets but this new creation by Ramin Assadollahi, powered by the Raspberry Pi Zero W offers a fantastic truly portable DIY pocket PC. Watch the video below to learn more about the construction of the PocketPi and its features.
Measuring just 14 x 11 cm the portable Raspberry Pi pocket computer is powered by a 3000mAh battery and equipped with a Hyperpixel 4inch display, keyboard and a 4-port USB hub. Ramin has kindly published full instructions, component lists and 3D print files offering heverything you need to build your very own.
“I always want to be able to carry a little computer around that does reduces the outside distractions, like no email, ideally no browser, no messaging, etc. Actually I enjoy the “silence” that I have with the raspberry Pis. They allow me to focus on writing software for robots and the like.
Sometimes, you want to code on the go. My first second shot in that direction is the StickPi, a little computer without battery but with an e-paper display and a couple of buttons. I actually keep using it, it’s my most used self designed computer.”
