This is an experiment in creating a portable physical wallet than can easily be used by anyone who picks it up. You might have asked your self "Why not just create a phone app?" I've asked myself the same thing. The truth is I don't have an answer. I just wanted to play with a Raspberry Pi.
After following the steps, I ejected the card and plugged it into the Pi. I plugged in all the peripherals and boom shaka laka it looked like this:
SD card plugs in underneath the board, Micro USB going to my laptop for power, keyboard and wireless adapter connected to the USB ports, and an HDMI cable going to my monitor. I first plugged everything else but power, then when I finally plugged in the power (and after a minute or two of booting) I got to the config screen:
Don't mind the toilet paper. I live by me onesie.
Success! I ran through the configuration as per the tutorial I was following and it went smoothly. The only thing that was different was that I decided I didn't need to configure the wireless network for now. There's only two USB ports, and my keyboard was already taking up one slot, so I decided to plug my mouse in instead of the wireless adapter.
There has been a great deal of value to me in my involvement with the project. Would like to share it with the womens leather credit card holder team so they can also read it and implement something new.
