Build Your Own Raspberry Pi-Powered Tablet

Build Your Own Raspberry Pi-Powered Tablet

Tablets are typically expensive and don't exactly offer up much of chance for customisation. If you don't mind making your own tablet, DIYer Michael Castor shows off his Raspberry Pi-powered tablet.

The tablet uses a ton of parts, including a 10" touch screen, heat sinks, dongles for Bluetooth and WiFi, a battery that dishes out about six hours of life, and a bunch more. The entire thing is enclosed in a piece of plywood with a carbon fibre back. From there, it's all about construction and getting everything into the box. It's not an easy project by any means, but it's definitely a cool one.
