Tablets are typically expensive and don’t exactly offer up much of chance for customization. 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 fiber 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.
