Resin.io has provided instructions on a unique way to keep your raspberry Pi project safe from knocks, bumps and damage by encasing all the electronic components in resin.
Even though the electronics are encased in resin everything works as normal and the system is equipped with an inductive charger that is capable of providing it with power without any external connection.
Resin.io does a lot of cool stuff. But if you had to say what we do in one sentence, it’s this: “resin.io enables you to safely deploy and manage fleets of embedded devices that you might not have physical access to.”
I’m a Solution Architect here, which means that part of my job is to show people exactly how resin.io works. Usually I do this in a very “real world” way by pointing webcams at devices located in our offices all around the world and then deploying code to them with a single git push. But I’ve always wanted a way to make this feel even more tangible than deploying to a fleet of Raspberry Pis that are thousands of kilometers apart. Something that people could really see and know for sure that resin.io just plain works.
A few weeks ago I realized how I could do it: I’d attach a display to a Raspberry Pi and encase the entire thing in a block of clear epoxy resin. The USB and Ethernet ports are filled in and the SD card slot is inside the solid block. Even when I carry it with me, it’s still accessible only remotely. It’s literally an “embedded” device.
I call it “resin-in-resin.”
