Makers, developers and hobbyists that enjoy building projects using the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC are sure to enjoy this lunchbox laptop computer project created by Instructable user agent036.
The lunchbox laptop is powered by a Raspberry Pi single board mini PC and provides all the functionality of a wifi netbook with a small screen, all be it a little slower than most netbooks on the market.
The project uses a Raspberry Pi model B but its creator explains that maybe using the new Raspberry Pi model B+ will be a better option. As the older version sometimes can’t run both the wireless and Bluetooth dongles at the same time.
The lunchbox Raspberry Pi laptop is fitted with a 10,000 mAh USB Battery and has been loaded with a Raspbian OS Micro SD card and connected to a composite 5″ LCD, AZIO Bluetooth Keyboard and Edimax Wifi Dongle.
For more information on the new Raspberry Pi lunchbox laptop jump over to the Instructable website for full details and instructions on how to build your very own using a $6.50 lunchbox. The complete cost of the laptop came in at nearly $200 which might be a little expensive for some but as an awesome Raspberry Pi project seems worth every penny.Filed Under: Cool Mods, DIY Projects, Hardware, Top News
