The YARH.IO project (short for Yet Another Raspberry Handheld) is a project that aims to create tiny laptops that will perfectly suit the needs of programmers, casual users and hackers. The YARH.IO Micro 2 is, as its name implies, the second computer developed as part of the project, and it is without a doubt an intriguing product.
This tiny computer is built around the Raspberry Pi 3B chipset, with a 4-inch touchscreen and 800X480 pixel resolution. The specifications also include a full QWERTY keyboard, a 3,500 mAh removable battery, and two full-size USB connections through which additional components such as a cellular modem, GPS receiver, or memory expansion drives can be connected to the computer. The operating system is of course Linux, and according to the members of the project, the computer manages to handle most of the popular applications, including the VLC video player.
In the spirit of that increase and creativity, in the R project includes links to purchase each and every one of the components that make up a computer, in order to compile independently. Even the case, designed specifically for the YARH.IO Micro 2, is offered for download as a printable drawing using 3D printers. For those looking to get a complex and complete computer, it is offered for purchase in black, gray and red for $ 629.99. Most of the amount is a contribution to the continuation of the project – of course, purchasing each of the components separately and assembling them independently is a cheaper option.
