Shove the Raspberry Zero and Screen Into a Portable Microcomputer Tin Can

It’s been a while since we saw a good tin Altoids project, but on Hackmypi they have a guide on putting a $ 5 Raspberry Pi Zero and touchscreen in a jar.

The project uses a 2-inch Adafruit screen, adds Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a full-size USB port. The whole thing is cast in tin Altoids, soldered and coated with Sugru, and then connected to a 2000mAh battery. Obviously, you’ll still need to use some kind of external mouse and keyboard, but the idea is solid. You will find the complete guide at Hackmypi.
