Raspberry Pi turned into a portable Computer

A Raspberry Pi has been made into a very small, portable computer which includes a keyboard with a mouse pad, and also a very small monitor. The portable computer also uses very little power and is connected up to a Battery. SK Pang Electronics connected the keyboard, USB power pack and small LCD monitor to the Raspberry Pi. They had to overcome a problem where the power pack only gave out 5 volts of power, the monitor alone needs 12 volts. A quote which shows that they did “The 5v regulator was bypassed, but that can cause issues as the voltage protection is removed and the display could get damaged if not handled correctly.”
