If you are searching for a portable workstation enabling you to learn more about the Raspberry Pi platform or coding in general, you might be interested in a new modular system that allows you to tinker and connect a wide variety of different modules and hardware all in a compact portable battery-powered enclosure.
Unlike a traditional laptop every component is available to be removed, tweaked or upgraded as necessary and allows you to enjoy full touchscreen interactivity and supports a wide variety of single board computers in addition to the Raspberry Pi. Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the interesting project from roughly $234 or £199 (depending on current exchange rates).
“How thrilling is the feeling if you could create a laptop with your own bare hands. The happiness and feeling of pride tops when you are not a techie and still could do it without any struggle.
