Creating a Raspberry Pi Zero touchscreen handheld – NODE’s new version of the Zero Terminal

For a while, NODE has tried to create the most portable Raspberry Pi Zero mini computer. He’s one step closer with his latest creation – version 3 of the Zero Terminal. It has the following features:

  • A 5.5″ AMOLED touchscreen.
  • Full-sized USB 2.0 port.
  • microUSB port for charging.
  • A power switch.
  • Headphone jack.
  • Three GPIO-connected custom buttons.
  • 1200 mAh LiPo battery.
  • A small speaker.
  • Two custom 40-pin headers to connect peripherals (but not standard Pi HATs etc).

The 40-pin header on the back allows for the creation of what NODE calls “backpacks”. One of the first he made was a keyboard backpack which slides out from underneath:
