For Christmas we decide to "upgrade" the computer of our daughter with the Rpi V3.

We bought the RPi at Pimoroni: https://shop.pimoroni.com/, a nice shop with a great support.

The Idea came from my wife as we had at the kitchen a tablet stand from IKEA (model Rimforsa), as we where inspired by the Kano design

Fro the screen I bougth a LCD screen in DealExtreme, with the HDMI connector.

For the sound I used a cheap speaker, but at home, the Rpi is mainly connected to a bluetoth speakers.

The concept is quite simple, a big cut for the screen, and them hiding the Pi and the electronics behind the screen.

My daugther is playing with the Kano OS

Step 1: Assembly the Frame.

First step is to test the electronics.

The, cut the stand to the dimensions of the screen.

Later, with the cutoff of the front I prepared the stands for the electronics:with countersunk screw, then this stand is glued on position behind the screen. I didn´t want to see the bolts from the back of the stand, that´s why I went with this solution.

I attached with hot glue the screen control buttons in the rear opening of the Rimforsa

Finally, the installation of the screen with hot-glue

<p>It looks good :)</p>
