Perhaps you’ve seen mini Raspberry Pi computing terminals, but thought that, while interesting, they generally involve more tedious electronics work and setup than you prefer. If this sounds like you, then there is good news in the form of the Raspberry UMPC Project.

This little terminal links a standard Bluetooth keyboard to a Raspberry Pi concealed inside of a 3D-printed clamshell case. A 5” monitor is connected through the GPIO via Adafruit’s Kippah board, forgoing the need for an HDMI connector sticking out the back or exotic wiring.

Of course, there is some modification needed, as the Pi will need to be stripped of some unneeded components per these instructions, and a battery pack and charger will need to be connected, however, everything else looks quite straightforward.

If you’d like to build your own, the body of the case is available on Shapeways, and the models for it and the rest of the printed components are up on Thingiverse.
