Raspberry Pi low cost monitor breaks funding goal

A Kickstarter campaign to build an inexpensive 9 inch high definition monitor to connect to the Raspberry Pi was fully funded in just three days.

The £65 HDMIPi is an affordable small and portable HDMI monitor to connect to the Raspberry Pi. It broke the funding target of £55,000 and today has gathered £106,623 with 25 days left to go.

Alex Earnes, co-founder of the HDMIPi said “Small HDMI screens are expensive. Native HD ones are astronomical. We want to drive the price down “Raspberry Pi” style.”

The panel has a 9 inch 1280×800 HD Display complete with the HDMI controller board and traditional display ribbon cable similar to those found on laptop displays. It needs assembly before use and means builders can incorporate it into their own chassis. The panel is not just limited to use with the Raspberry Pi however as it could be used with any device featuring an HDMI output, including consoles, computers or smartphones.

Kitguru says: The Raspberry Pi has proven popular, costing only £30 and supporting Linux and other software such as Plex or XBMC.
