Short and sweet post today. I cannot believe the timing of this. I was just looking at the big fat cable that winds around our bedroom 20 times over before heading back into the Raspberry Pi. It is huge. And look at what the boys at PiHut have produced. From their website:
Want to still have access to your Raspberry Pi GPIO pins when using your Official Raspberry Pi Touchscreen? Tired of messy wires? We have the solution!
We love the Raspberry Pi touchscreen but we hate having to blocking our GPIO pins! That’s why we had these lovely little cables custom made!
It’s just 7cm long and capable of providing a full 5V to your Raspberry Pi, directly from the official touchscreen’s USB port! The cable is the exact length needed – no more messy wiring!
