Raspberry Pi and a 5inch screen in an armband?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all, I’m deciding to do this weird or cool depending on how you look at it project. I have a Raspberry Pi 4 along with a 5 inch display( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013JECYF2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_HDLhEb1EVJKZ9)

 

I was hoping these 2 items could fit in an iPhone Arm band holder. Again this is just a DIY stupid idea plan I might make a YouTube video on so I’m coming here for opinions if it’ll fit.

If you can get someone to 3d print you a shell I don't see how it couldn't work.

 

Pricing on this is nice, I may buy one to use in my own DIY (been interested in doing a panel inside PC that shows the temps, rpms, etc

To me, as a non pi user but someone who could learn it (I LOVE DIY), seems it just needs the proper connections and a case using the best form factor possible, and voila you have it :)

I could just get a 3D printer, I’m starting to get into DIY projects like this and it would be usuful.

Definitly. But make sure you get a proper one. To prevent messy prints.

The people I know with the CR-10s are happy with them, Creality makes good stuff.

 

As for the fitting into an armband, keep in mind that a Raspi 3B+ and that screen you linked are around an inch thick, and wouldn't be super graceful in an armband. See if you can get the performance for what you want to do out of a raspi zero. It doesn't have the full size USB and RJ45 ports on it, and doesn't have the header pins soldered on, so it allows you to build something much thinner.

Also runs much cooler and eats less power. Pi4s can get toasty depending on the load.
