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.
