We knew it wouldn't be long before the Raspberry Pi 400 mods started rolling in. Today we're sharing this awesome 3D-printed creation from a maker on Reddit known as Jwktje.

The project uses a custom-designed, 3D-printed asset created by Jwktje to mount a screen to the Raspberry Pi 400. The coolest part? The screen doesn't even use the HDMI port—it's connected using the GPIO pins.

According to Jwktje, the screen used is a Pimoroni Hyperpixel touchscreen which eliminates the need for a mouse.

It's designed specifically to mount to the Raspberry Pi 400. Jwktje commented that they often store the Pi 400 with the screen attached but you can also remove it between uses. If you'd like to print this mod for yourself, download the STL files published by Jwktje on Thingiverse.

    I like this project and all, but i think it would be better if you made the 3d printed case connected and glued to the GPIO extender, so that it would stay in place better and not have to be held in place when moving it around. (and maybe also room in the case for a power pack, so you could use it in an airplane. For some reason, the idea of being able to use it in an airplane is really appealing to me, but I don't know why.)
    Thanks for sharing!
