Build Your Own Smartphone Powered By Raspberry Pi

Build Your Own Smartphone Powered By Raspberry Pi

You wouldn’t think of it to look at it, but the Raspberry Pi can make a pretty decent DIY smartphone. Instructables user Mach_5 shows you how to do it.

Mach_5’s build uses a Raspberry Pi Model A+, a small touchscreen, camera, Wi-Fi adaptor, GSM antenna and a few other parts. It then runs a mobile operating system called TYOS to power the smartphone capabilities. Obviously, this isn’t as powerful, sleek or feature-packed as an actual smartphone, but it’s an interesting project nonetheless. It’s also a bit more useful than previous versions of the same idea.
