Thanks😊. Will be working on a more detailed build now, for now this is the first iteration. Have a couple of ideas with this build😊.
The parts I used are the following:
RGB LEDS - Pimoroni Blinkt
Display - Waveshare 4.3 DSI touch screen display
RTL-SDR - Nooelec nesdr smart usb, this only does RF reception, if both transmition and receiption is needed the HackRF would be an option.
USB angled adapter - this is so I don’t hit the rtl sdr dongle by mistake and damage the RPI usb port.
The radio requires no internet connection this is similar to a frequency scanner. You can only listen on any given frequency from the sdr-rtl range.
For the display a CSI/DSI ribbon is needed, preferably longer than 50cm so this can be routed internally.
To fix the display to the pi-top, this requires a bit of drilling (not for the fainthearted ). A couple of standoffs and that’s it.
I do want to expand on the OLED and buttons and somehow integrate more functions but have not had a chance to look into this. If anyone is willing to share some examples that would be very much appreciated.
What I would like to have is in the pi-top oled menu using the buttons to go to a submenu and add certain features there (i.e run the RGB leds code when a certain button is pressed).
For example as I did it in this video with my pwnagotchi build:
Thanks for your interest!
I hope to see more projects from this great community and exchange ideas😉
