In my previous post, I put together my build of the Raspberry Pi Laptop, but was unhappy with the fact that my circuit board would be exposed, and there would be loose wires (mainly the USB cable) just freely arched over the Pi.
I decided I should cut a USB pass-through slot in the cover of my Raspberry Pi case, since the USB draped over the circuit board in a simple arc, and laid down very nicely by the HDMI port and USB ports.
So here’s how I did it…
In an earlier post, I wrote about my personal tech road map, and the first milestone on that was to build the Raspberry Pi Laptop out of my Motorola Atrix 4G Laptop Dock and Raspberry Pi.
I can’t take credit for this, as the project idea and implementation has been around for at least 2 years. However, I did make some changes to the steps I followed, and modified my Raspberry Pi case to make the circuit board a little safer.
I’ve gotten my hands on a lot of tech projects in the past few months, but I have yet to do anything significant with any of them.
After a few months of bouncing around ideas, learning a couple new things, and venturing into subjects I have before found difficult to learn, I started asking myself “What is stopping me from learning this? Is there any real that I can’t?”
I bought a Raspberry Pi recently, and have been slowly gathering all the hardware pieces I need to build something with it. One of those pieces is the TP-Link Wireless USB adapter, similar to the one shown here.
Six years to the day, on July 4th, 2013 I performed open-case surgery on my primary gaming computer, aka [[Neo]], and on my media-server-turned-gaming-PC that my wife has used, aka [[Oracle]], and migrated the internals of [[Neo]] into [[Oracle]] and bought all new parts for [[Neo]].
