You may remember a little while ago I posted about a cool new project I had found out about, the PiTop.
As you may remember, the PiTop is a project that gives you all the pieces you need to create a Raspberry Pi (Model B+) powered laptop. From the 3D-printed case, to the 13 inch HD screen, to the built-in WiFi & Bluetooth, you get to create a full-on, portable, Raspberry Pi-powered laptop.
If you want to know more about the project, go ahead and click through on the link above, as this post is just simple status update.
Status update inbound!
So, what’s this status update you’re talking about? Well, it’s that the PiTop’s crowd-funding, indiegogo campaign has been launched. This means you can now back the project, and get early-bird pricing on the product.
Currently $229, the Super Early Bird discount (full kit, including Model B+ Pi) has already sold out and the project is already at 47% of its $80,000 goal. Pretty impressive for the first day and the full goal should be easily reached, with an entire month left.
You can still pick up an early-bird version of the PiTop, albeit sans-Pi, for $209; and a full, non-Super Early Bird version for $249. Information on the project and all of the information about the campaign are available on the project’s Indiegogo campaign page.
