KindleBerry Pi!

We left our little studio in the Kootenays last July to travel throughout Europe, traveling to discover about new media, spiritual centers, art, design and open source initiative. I decided to go really minimal on the computer gear stuff, so I only packed my Kindle, a camera, an android phone and of course my Raspberry Pi!

The Raspberry pi, although a beautiful project and quite an electronic feat, it can be a bit limiting as a main production machine, but I convinced myself I could use it as my main traveling computer.

The plan was, using a Kindle as a screen, connecting it to the processing power of the Raspberry Pi while using an external keyboard to work comfortably. Since connecting an external keyboard to the Kindle seemed impossible at that point, I needed to use the Raspberry Pi as the ‘hub’. The tinkering started and the KindleBerry Pi was soon to be born.

Although I ended up buying a laptop while traveling, all that dreaming and tinkering ended up working nicely, creating a really portable development platform. At the least it has become a proof of concept that could be used for other similar projects. So here is how you can create your very own KindleBerry Pi!

Lets get started

What you will need to do this hack:

  • a Kindle 3 ( 1 or two, if you end up breaking the first one)
  • a Raspberry Pi
  • 2 micro usb to usb cables (one for power and one to connect the Kindle to the Raspberry Pi)
  • One keyboard connected to the Raspberry pi
  • Optional are a kindle stand (you can use an old audio tape box)
  • Optional again is a usb hub since the KindleBerry pi has both port in use when assembled.
