Overview

This is a Raspberry Pi notebook. Our 3D Printed enclosure turns the Pi and a 3.5” PiTFT into a sweet retro mini laptop. The mini chiclet keyboard is both adorable and wireless. It features a trackpad, but you can also use the Touch screen on the PiTFT.

Rechargable through the PowerBoost 1000C, the 2000mAh battery fits between the screen and the Raspberry Pi. 3D Printed hinges attach to the enclosure, making this a tiny portable computer!

The 3.5" PiTFT is much bigger and slower than the 2.8" PiTFT and is not good to use with fbcp and certainly wont be able to run emulationstation or the like at any reasonable quality

Usage

The best use case for this project is for monitoring and controling prints, checking up on webcams or even streaming music. You can even play text adventures games like Zork!

Prerequisite Guides

Check out the following guides below to get a better understanding of the pin outs for the PiTFT and Powerboost 1000C.

Please note this project was specifically designed for the PiTFT Plus 3.5” display, PID 2441. This will NOT work with PID 2097.

Parts, Tool & Supplies

If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you can send the files to a service or check with your local hackerspace/library.
