Portable Raspberry Pi Tablet

In this project, we'll show you how to build a portable Raspberry Pi 2, using a 7" capacitive multitouch 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.

7" Multitouch Display

In this build, we're using the official 7” multitouch display from the Raspberry Pi foundation. It features a beautiful IPS display and includes the drivers to work on a Raspberry Pi 2.

The 3D printed enclosure gives you access to all of the ports. Instead of stacking all of the boards on top of each other, this design allow the components to be spread out, making a slim package.

Parts List

Below is a list of parts used in this project. You can optionally choose to make it portable by including an Adafruit PowerBoost 1000c and a 2500mAh lithium polymer battery. You will also need some hardware screws to mount the components to the enclosure.

Tools & Supplies

Here's a list of tool used to get this project completed. If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you can send your parts to 3DHubs.com to have them printed and shipped to you.
