Handlet™ – Starting Up

Handlet™ – Starting Up

Our Journey with Raspberry Pi

Our Journey with Raspberry Pi began eight years ago when we needed some way of to implement capacity utilization rate system for factory machines. The project involved electricity work,  database management, wireless technologies, coding knowledge, IoT design etc. and of course familiarizing with this new and amazing Raspberry Pi computer. It was all put together into a single Raspberry Pi with version 1 at that time, the project was later moved to 2nd version after few years due to performance increase.

Here’s the prototype after few weeks of R&D-work in the year 2013. There’s wireless connection to the factory machines, all capacity information is put into database and reports and can be created with separate user interface.

The project was spot on and we noticed how versatile and flexible Raspberry Pi with its peripherals can be and lead to another project. Here we are after almost ten years of experience and with tens of trial & errors with the Raspberry Pi i.e. learning by doing. This has lead to a first battery powered Raspberry Pi in the world (at least it was during that time). Let us introduce the Handlet™ and start digging into its fine-grained philosophy.

Handlet was designed from scratch with true professionals with years of experience. Not even single compromise was made. Let’s take the Raspberry Pi to the next level together.

Let us introduce the Handlet™

As already mentioned the Handlet™ is a battery powered Rasperry Pi. There wasn’t one on the market at the time when the development started. The example project described at the beginning would have been even more successful with this kind of product at hands, there wouldn’t have been need to invent things from scratch. It is equipped with many problem solving solutions we’ve come up during years of experience on the field:

  • ALL EXTERNAL PORTS OF RASPBERRY PI 4B FULLY SUPPORTED
  • BUILT TO LAST WITH PA6 GRILON BG-15 MATERIAL
  • PLACE FOR 12000mAh BATTERY
  • PLACE FOR 5″ SCREEN (MOST 5″ SCREENS FIT)
  • PLACE FOR SPEAKER
  • PLACE FOR EXTERNAL BUTTONS WITH LEDS
  • EXTERNAL CARDS SUPPORTED (E.G PIJUICE)
  • VESA STANDARD MOUNT SUPPORTED
  • EASY ACCESS TO SD-CARD
  • PLACE FOR 40-PIN GPIO-CABLE

Compact yet Versatile

All the functionality listed here makes this a fully working computer which is easy to carry from one place to another. It’s not a tablet, it’s not a laptop…it’s a Handlet™ with all its glory. You can utilize it as a case cover for your own project where you equip it yourself as you like or get a fully assembled package. This also makes the product especially good for educational purposes. What would be better than building your own fully functional computer without worrying about the case cover?!

There are tens of use scenarios, some of them could be as follows:

  • CARRY EASILY IN THE AIRPORT
  • READ E-MAILS USING TOUCH SCREEN
  • WATCH MOVIES WITH ROTATED SCREEN
  • CONNECT TO EXTERNAL SCREEN AT THE OFFICE

It doesn’t end here. The journey continues as we are continuously doing research and development with Raspberry Pi related projects. We’ll introduce some of them here our website. We’ll also update tutorials for some of the things we constantly hear that needs to be documented, not only for Handlet™ itself but also other Raspberry Pi related matters. The story has just begun and there’s a lot to come. Let’s make this happen together!
