Do you ever have those moments where you wish you instantly had access to a Linux terminal? or maybe you have a sudden idea for a python program and you just can't wait to start writing it on a Pi? Well this is for you!
The Blueberry Pi harnesses the power of Bluetooth SPP, which is essentially a virtual serial port over Bluetooth. When you connect a SPP device to a PC, Mac, Linux, or Android device, you can communicate with it as you would if you were to open a terminal or SSH into the Pi, but with no wires. On top of that the Blueberry Zero has an integrated LiPo booster and charger, so you can power your Pi with a LiPo Battery. Making it completely portable. Turn it on, throw it in your bag, wireless raspberry Pi terminal everywhere you go!
Extra Features: Safe Shutdown Button, Battery Voltage(analog - i2c)
I went for it and I added it. This should be cool.
I decided to throw on a 18650 battery into the design. I've flipped the battery holder and mounted it through the PCB to save some space. It will add some support to the housing as well since the battery holder has small clips.
New case design. I figured it would be cool to still have access to the GPIO. Should make prototyping wireless projects with the Pi Zero pretty simple(not that it was hard). The main idea for this project is to be able to have a wireless terminal with you at all times - just a basic UART Bluetooth terminal via SPP. Now you can throw some wires on there and play around with the GPIO as well.
I will probably also draw up a GPIO reference sticker to stick on there also but the case is basically so you can just throw the thing in your bag. Of course I still need to add ports for the HDMI and USB(maybe two versions). I will also just make a basic "Stand" version since the battery sticks a little bit below the Pi Zero. Should be easy to 3D printer, and cheap to order through Shapeways. I decided to go with the 18650 even though its a little bit bigger. There are smaller LiPos like the 14450 but they aren't as "available" and they have a much smaller mAh. The 18650 battery should give some pretty good up time before needing a recharge.
What does everyone think? I'm personally excited to get my own!
