Nice project. Very simple and easy to use. I made a kid friendly movie player too. My project uses books that have been converted into movies. My students can select from over 300 different books. I use KODI to run things. For stability, I built a controller--It allows me to limit what kids can do and makes everything much more stable. I also heavily hacked the KODI preferences to help control user input. You can take a look at it here:https://hackaday.io/project/15239-making-books-acc...In my search for a kids friendly video GUI, I've looked at a lot of devices:I-pads and other tablets, consoles, dvd players, etc--No device seems specifically designed for kids.
Hey ceafinThe switch on the power boost cuts power to both the 5v and raw outputs, so both the screen and the pi are powered off.Hope this helps!
That booster should work. Just make sure the 12v output is enough for your screen.
> "Batteries are soldered to the battery inputs of the 1000c, with the USB out powering the Pi. The 12v boost converter is wired to the raw battery outs on the 1000c, then to the screen."The 12v boost converter is wired in parallel to the battery as it is to the 1000C board? Wouldn't this power the screen even when the 1000C board was switched off? I am probably missing something here. Could you please elaborate? I have having a similar issue powering a 7" TFT (non touch screen) along side my RaspPi with a 1000C board.Please and thank you!
so maybe something like this for the 12v booster?https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01INC50WE/ref=psd_mlt_bc_B01INC50WE
so for me, I was going to use one of adafruits lipo batteries, so it would hook up to the top left connector, and the the Pi to the 5V and GND, but what would be the raw outputs, the right hand terminals where the USB port would go if wanted? and so the screen and the 12v booster would both connect there in parallel?...sorry, I'm kind of dense, and I don't want to blow the few things I bought with my pennies. thanks!
