But the PiSugar doesn’t stop there. Additionally, there are instances, to get a 1.3 inch LCD shirt, a 2.13 inch ePaper display, an OLED screen, a camera, a 4G module, and some thing which just presents the pins by the Pi GPIO header. This is an entire platform, and they look like little sugar cubes packed to the brim with Linux goodness and electronics, if you print these parts in plastic.
It’s true, you’ve noticed 3D printed Pi cases before, but nothing in the manner of an entire platform that seems and provides you like sweet cubes of sucrose.
The core of this construct is a small circuit board that the size of a Pi Zero. Attached to this board is a battery, and the entire assembly is attached to the Pi Zero using a set of 2 spring clips that fit with a pair of pads on the back of the Pi. Screw the two of these boards and you’ve got a perfect solution to adding electricity to some Pi Zero.
Considering that the Pi Zero was released, there have been attempts. Mobile phone batteries are all about precisely the same size as a Pi Zero, after all, and adding a USB charging port and soldering a few cables is simple. The PiSugar is possibly the cutest battery pack we’ve noticed for the Pi Zero, and it comes in a variety of Hats compatible with the Pi, capable of becoming a small screen, a keyboard, or another thing in which a small, portable Linux system is useful.
