This is one of the coolest RPi stories I've ever seen, nice work! It's too common for people to just stop at shoving the device into a chassis and hooking it up to a monitor... this is another level entirely. Quite a brilliant use of that kind of display as well. It really does go to show how flexible our hardware really is, and not to mention Linux itself.
What is the point of the battery pack, vs a standard 5v AC adapter?
Adds a bit more portability to the device and fewer external connections needed. Next mod would be looking for a way to power the LCD off an internal source as well.

Good job Michael,.....looks like a fun project.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
where did you get the enclosure? I've ben looking for ages for a enclosure like that!!
A local place called U-Do-It Electronics but I think you can find them on the web.
very exciting project michael.
but i think if we purchase an ARM based mini computer that come with case will be better, to keep the size small.
thank you for sharing
how do you set up the display options?
what set up [/boot/config.txt] or other ...?
i have same monitor, but very bad view terminal mode....
best regards, Michael
I like the idea but all in all.....the effort you put into making a portable pc im my opinion you would be better of just buying a laptop lol
Did you connect a mouse and keyboard?
I'd love to know how you set up the display options in config.txt also. I also have the same screen and by god it hurts my eyes!!
What display resolution are you using?
