If you are looking for a new Raspberry Pi project to keep you busy over a weekend you might be interested in this new portable Raspberry Pi tablet.
The Pi Tablet has been created using a little 3D printing and the new 7 inch touchscreen display recently launched by the Raspberry Pi Foundation priced at £49.
Using a Pi Foundation PiTFT 7″ Touchscreen Display together with a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, a 2500mAh Lithium Ion Polymer Battery and a 3D printed case the portable tablet has been created. The Adafruit website explains a little more :
In this project, we’ll show you how to build a portable Raspberry Pi 2, using a 7″ capacitive multitouch display, an Adafruit PowerBoost 1000C and a 2500mAh battery. Our 3D printed enclosure fits all of the components making an all-in-one, compact Raspberry Pi tablet.
The 3D printed enclosure gives you access to all of the ports. Instead of stacking all of the boards on top of each other, this design allow the components to be spread out, making a slim package.
Jump over to the Adafruit website for more details and full instructions on how to build your very own Raspberry Pi Tablet.
