Use A Kindle Fire As A Screen For A Raspberry Pi

Use a Kindle Fire as a Screen for a Raspberry Pi

\ If you're looking for a way to make the Raspberry Pi more portable, programmer Jeff Ammons shows off how he uses his Kindle Fire as a screen for his Raspberry Pi. Ammons' system gets the Raspberry Pi and Kindle to talk to each other with a remote desktop app, then creates an adhoc network with the Pi so it functions as a router.

This makes it portable and usable from anywhere. From there, Ammons just installed the software he needed on his Pi. Now he has a portable and easy-to-setup Linux machine he can take anywhere.
