Introduction: Raspberry Pi 2 Kraft Case

About: Howdy, we are application engineers in Seeed. Sharing projects with maker community is awesome. Hope you like it XD Seeed is the IoT hardware enabler providing services that empower IoT developers to swiftly …

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.

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

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