In this project, we’ll show you how to build a portable Raspberry Pi 2, using a 7″ touchscreen display, an Adafruit PowerBoost 1000c and a 2500mAh battery. Our 3D printed enclosure fits all of the components making an all-in-one, compact Raspberry Pi tablet.

Best Five Raspberry Pi Zero Electronics Projects Which Make The Most Of Its Tiny Measurement

The Raspberry Pi is definitely the hobbyist option for Build-it-yourself electronic projects. The Raspberry Pi Zero, that’s around the measurements of a stick of chewing gum, is comparatively low priced and has it’s own special use examples though. There are ten of our most liked projects which make the most of its measurement.

1. Cram a Raspberry Pi Zero Into an Old-fashioned Game Controller

It is well known the Raspberry Pi makes an nice DIY computer game console. The setup process merely demands a matter of minutes, and the Raspberry Pi Zero is utterly efficient at coping with older computer games from the SNES age and perhaps earlier. The complete project is far better when the whole system is inside a controller.

Working example (ahem), this project utilizes a SNES controller, this one tackles the NES controller, and this one uses that good old original Xbox controller. However you intend to practice it, you will have a really slick little DIY classic video game console you can easily carry around wherever.

2. Build a Tiny Dongle Computer

While the Pi Zero makes a nice little computer as it is, it makes an even better dongle computer. By doing so, you can attach it to some other computer you have, then it will tether itself directly so you won’t need to include a USB or any networking.

The most wonderful thing of this project is the point you no longer need yet another PC mouse, display screen, or keyboard hanging out around. Simply just jam in into your standard desktop PC and you are fine.

3. Build the Planet’s Minutest (Potentially) MAME Cabinet

MAME cabinets are brilliant, but they are tremendous. For the complete opposite approach, you can make use of a Raspberry Pi Zero to make one that is almost as tiny as the Pi itself.

You may need a few items to build this sucker work, for example a 3D printed case, but in the end cabinet is extremely functional, which means you’ll have the best desk add-on in the office.

4. Make a Motion Sensing Digicam


The Raspberry Pi has been a top quality motion sensing camera, but the low profile of the Pi Zero makes it even better.

Employing the Raspberry Pi Zero, your motion sensing camera has a smaller foot print, indicating it can go in even tighter rooms. To illustrate, this one mounts to your window with a pair of suction cups, which is nearly as lightweight as it can get.

5. Play Any Simpsons Episode (or perhaps Any Television Program) At Random

If you have ditched cable and gone full streaming with your media, you might still miss the days of catching a random episode of your most enjoyable show on TV. The Raspberry Pi Zero can bring that back.

In this project, they use episodes of The Simpsons stored on an Sdcard. With a custom script, you possibly can press a button and it plays an episode arbitrarily. You may increase any media you’d like here, including several shows if you wanted, however, The Simpsons are a wonderful option.
