Introduction: Raspberry Pi 2 Kraft Case

About: Howdy, we are application engineers in Seeedstudio. Sharing projects with maker community is awesome. Hope you like it XD

I received my long-expected Raspberry Pi a few days ago. I just couldn't wait to try out my crazy ideas on it. But wait, what if Pi can go portable. What if Pi can still rock on when a power source is unavailable. Problems to solve:

  • How to power supply when we on the road
  • How to put all the modules we need together

So this is what I came up with,Pi 2 Kraft Case, a brace for Pi & the power bank, which brought them two together perfectly.

So I design a brace for the Pi and mobile power. It can get them together.
Three ways to use the multifunctional bracket are as follow:

  • Just flat on the table
  • Use it as a stand withadjustable angles
  • With the keyboard:It will become a PSP

Step 1: Prepare Material

What we need is just some kraft paper and Nylon rivet.

Step 2: Cutting the Kraft Paper

If you can use a laser cutting machine, it will be a very easy step.

If not you may need some skill and tools, maybe a art knife or something else.

Step 3: Install the Case

After finish cut the kraft paper, let's begin the most important step: Installation.

Actual it's very hard to cut the kraft paper with just an art knife, but you guys as a maker, I believe you can make it :XD

There are few easy steps to make to a case, as shown in the image.

Step 4: Usage1 - Just Flat on the Table

It's the most common way to use - just flat it on the table.

Step 5: Usage2 - Use It As a Stand With Adjustable Angles

Just as someone will use their phone to watch a movie, I think that user a pi to do the same thing will much more cool.

The second way of using allow you to watch a movie comfortably.

You don't need to put it on hand anymore.

Step 6: Usage3 - With a Keyboard

The last usage is my favorite way of using. This way will change your pi to a PDA, and even like a small laptop.

You should have a handy keyboard first. There is a Keyboard recommended.

    aha, all the materials is easy to get and easy to make.

    Wow I love this, but I am wondering if the paper is strong enough to hold the board

    1 reply

    yes, strong enough, why no make one and test it.

    Very nice. I have also thought that an inexpensive computer like this should have an inexpensive case, this fits the bill.
