Raspi Lapdock: Ready for Hacking
















I've gotten my Lapdock + Raspberry Pi ready for hardware and software hacking, and I have to admit that I'm thrilled with the results.

Ingredients:
  • Motorola Bionic Lapdock
  • Raspberry Pi (Rev B)
  • Raspberry Pi camera
  • Tenda USB WiFi Adapter
  • 3D printed Raspberry Pi holder
  • 3D printed Raspberry Pi camera case
  • Short solderless bread board + components and wires
  • Cables and adapters for the lapdock <--> raspi connections
  • Lots of hook and loop fasteners to keep cables and devices tamed

At the end, I have a completely portable <3 lb wireless hacktop good not only for working on the go, but for keeping my work area neat.
